Hi Everyone, We had a wonderful Easter celebration starting with the Vigil mass last night at sunset. It was such a beautiful mass and Julia did very well. She slept about an hour and was snoring pretty loudly! It was a precious sound in between the Old Testament readings.

She and Lydia woke up very early to look for Easter eggs that the Easter bunny had left around the house. Her giggle was so infectious and she seemed so happy. The light of our Lord shines so brightly through both of the girls!

Both of them gave up bacon for Lent so I fixed it for them at breakfast. What a wonderful way to start the celebration of our Savior rising from the dead and redeeming us!
It's hard to imagine now that Julia wasn't part of our family! We have been so blessed by her and Lydia; God is good and He is risen! Alleluia! Happy Easter to all of you in blog land!


  1. Happy Easter to you and your precious family, too!! The girls are as cute as every and they both look so happy! :)

    Have a blessed day! <><

  2. I can't find your email address but wanted to make sure that you know that I have some baby pictures of Julia...I think only two..they are not great...she is wearing split pants and you can see her little bum! She used to be in the same foster family as my son from Hohhot. She was moved out of that foster home..don't know why. We adopted our son in August 2007.
    I am sure you have TONS of info from New Day but still...all the pieces of your daughter's life are important. Please email me if you'd like for me to scan and send these pics to you.
    ALL of my son's foster brothers and sisters have been adopted and his foster family is no longer fostering!
