Visit with Tayler

We love getting together with Tayler, and especially getting together to celebrate.  Tayler's birthday is tomorrow, so she came over with her family for dinner.  What a great night!

My favorite song from the Wicked soundtrack is For Good, because I love the concept behind these lyrics:

I've heard it said  
That people come into our lives for a reason 
Bringing something we must learn  
And we are led 
To those who help us most to grow  
If we let them  
And we help them in return  
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true  
But I know I'm who I am today  
Because I knew you...

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?  
But because I knew you  
I have been changed for good

So much of me  
Is made from what I learned from you  
You'll be with me  
Like a handprint on my heart  
And now whatever way our stories end 
I know you have re-written mine 
By being my friend...

Who can say if I've been  
Changed for the better? 
I do believe I have been 
Changed for the better 
Because I knew you...  
I have been changed for good...
This is how I feel about the miracle of adoption and the beautiful birth moms that are a part of my life.  I truly have been changed both for the better and for good by being invited into their lives.

 Love my presents!  Now just let me play!
