SJ's First Day...

on the beach was the BEST way
to celebrate her nine months Forever~
seems like forever ago that she became our Forever daughter,
as if we have always had her.

We are SO thankful to be on vacation this week!!!
There is no way we could be taking this trip
had it not been for two very special people.
Scott's mom and dad made a very sweet decision
to purchase a condo in Surfside/Garden City~Myrtle Beach, SC
and because of their generosity,
all four children get a week at the beach free!!!

They would be SO happy that precious SJ
was able to step out on the beach today
and run toward the water for the first time ever!!!
She was not the least bit apprehensive ~

It was the cutest thing to see her holding out her arms
trying to keep her balance standing in the water~

She absolutely LOVED the water!~

At one point,
I looked up to see her walking toward the water
with a boogie board...
as if she knew what to do~

After watching EK for a minute,
she was ready to try it herself~

And not to worry,
she LOVES the sand just as much as she loves the water~
It was a wonderful day for all of us~
more about EK and the bigs later this week. :)

Adoption Update~
We are SO excited that a family has been at Shepherd's Field
over the weekend
and she told me in her post today~
"Sharon & Angie…saw your sweet angels…will share more with you when we return!"

Now that took my breath away~
someone actually saw our son and has news to share.
WOW, thank you Jesus!!!

Annie, Will's sponsor, flew to China yesterday
and will be there for about 6 weeks or so
to teach English and play with the children @ Shepherd's Field.
She is planning to send us photos while she is there!!!
SO THANKFUL that we will see him again soon!!! :)


  1. Love these pictures! There is no greater way to spend the day than at the beach, and it looks like you have a real water baby. It's wonderful that you will be getting so many updates on Will-can't wait to see them.


  2. What precious memories you are making! Enjoy!

    How sweet and amazing that you know of people who are seeing Will. Priceless!

  3. Oh you have got a fearless one don't you!!! Love the expressions on SJ's face, what fun times for you all.

    And how exciting that you'll see some recent pics of your sweet boy!
