Sweet ShayleeJoy

This morning after we were back from breakfast,
SJ picked up my cellphone and figured out how to turn it on.
My screensaver pic is her at the bd party in China
and when she saw it, she smiled SO big
and turned to show me.
I just happened to be holding my camera and snapped this.
She pointed to the others and said their names.
I know she must miss them so
and I can't even explain to her what has happened.
Praying God speaks to her heart for me.
In the meantime,
I will hold on to these smiling moments from Him!

PS... Thank you all so much for your precious comments!!!
We read each and every one.
Please know even though I don't answer back,
I LOVE getting them.
They make the time away from home so much easier.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!


  1. She is just beautiful...and smart too. Our guide in China spent quite a bit of time talking to our girls and explaining to them what was happening. Your little SJ is going to be just fine. I can just tell by looking into her eyes that she is a very intelligent child.

  2. My favorite line of this post is "I just happened to have my camera"!

  3. She is so precious. So glad you happened to be holding your camera to capture this moment:)



  4. She is beautiful and she has a beautiful smile! I am praising God every day all day for your forever child and for how God picked you and Scott to be her forever parents! Praise HIM! Give her many hugs and kisses from all of your friends in GA!

  5. How PRECIOUS!! That is priceless! So glad you had your camera to capture that moment!!

  6. That is so precious that she recognized herself! Maybe she had a better time at her birthday party then we previously thought??

  7. Oh! Be still my heart!!! What a precious little darling she is! And it sounds like she is adjusting well...praise the Lord!!!

  8. oh I love that you captured this photo!!! The memory is captured forever - How very special and sweet!!!

  9. Oh my goodness, this is the best picture ever!!! She is so stinking cute and I love that headband! I can't wait to hug and kiss her!! How funny how easy it is for kids to learn how to use the iPhone. Ha ha
