Miles Adoption Day - 2 years later

I originally was going to share Chapels birthday party today but yesterday was the 2 year celebration of Miles officially being a Lynne. It reminded me that I never shared these pictures on here. So I wanted to post them on here so we can always have them here too. Sarah of course shared them on her blog back when we were all originally celebrating. 

It was such a special day.. of course especially for his parents.

Im almost thankful I didnt post these until now because they mean even more now going back and looking at them. Seeing all of us together.. getting to celebrate all the Lord was doing with and through the Lynne's. Seeing community, the relationships we had, remembering the emotion of the day, that season of life and how truly unique and wonderful it was. Seeing Miles so young and knowing him now.. I cried looking through these. I miss it all.

You can see the emotion in these pictures. Im thankful I can remember the emotion of being there. Thankful Sarah & Drew let us walk through this with them and celebrate with them. Thankful they said yes to the Lord. Thankful for Miles.

And now thankful for Shepherd and Juliona. And wishing we had stopped everything we were doing to be at their adoption day.

And since that day so many wonderful things have happened that I wish we could all be together and celebrate. Sarah & Drew are now a family of 5 and about to grow again as they are waiting for another child!! And I could go on & on about each of our friends from Erie and how the Lord has done a mighty work in their lives or their family has grown or is growing or is about to grow or what the Lord is doing in their children's life or in their marriage or relationships! Holy cow it makes me swell up with thankfulness. I love the Lord and our friends.

Amen.

PS: There are even more pictures here if you are interested.
