A Little Piece of Heaven

We had a great time at the family reunion. There were fun games, yummy food, and plenty of wild and crazy relatives to visit with. Family rocks!

I spent most of my time with the newest member of the family.

As soon as my sister stepped out of her mini van I was there to snatch little baby Alyssa. I nuzzled her soft little neck. I ran her silky hair through my fingers. I adored her cute chubby baby wrinkles. I inhaled her intoxicating new baby smell. It was marvelous!

Yesterday I did a photo session of her wearing my hair clips. She opened up those beautiful gray blue eyes and looked right at me. My heart melted all over again.

I talked to my sister yesterday. She’s tired. Having a new baby will do that to you. I know that new babies mean sleepless nights, piles of laundry, endless dirty diapers, lots of spit-up, and no energy. I know all these things, but they don’t really matter to me. I’m ready. I can’t wait till we get to bring home our baby girl. I pray for her every day. I pray that her birth mother will find us.

I’m ready for another angel at our house. Thanks Heidi for letting me borrow yours for a few hours!


  1. It is a beautiful thing to pray for the birth mother, truly. It has a very deep and personal connection with my soul. I hope you are able to bring home a special little one to keep you up at night very soon!!

  2. SOOOO cute! I’m with you. I would give anything to have another baby! Although we’re not in a good place for one now, I hope you get yours soon!

  3. I must say when your page opened and I saw you holding a baby girl my heart skipped a beat. I thought she was yours. I’m glad you got to enjoy your neice for a while.

  4. Aww… she is just precious! I would have spent all my time with her too! 😉 Praying your baby finds her way home to you!

  5. Priceless pictures! She’s lucky to have such a fabulous aunt!!

  6. And I hope for those same things for you! That angel baby would be the luckiest (and most spoiled) little girl ever!

  7. Your niece is such a cutie!! I just love the photo shoot with the clips. Adoreable!

  8. She is beautiful!

  9. What a darling little niece you have!

    I will keep you and your family (& addition-to-be) in my prayers. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Amanda. I know prayer can be a powerful thing. We could use all the prayers we can get! 🙂
