This beautiful girl, my beloved baby sister Denise, is currently on a plane and will return forever changed. As a family, we will be blessed with a new family member and I will have the pleasure of not only becoming an Auntie again, but watching Den embrace Motherhood. I have no words to describe how excited we all are for her, boho boy and this adoption process.

this is better than a new puppy
an exotic vacation
becoming a millionaire
or worldwide fame

this is priceless
life's loving lessons
beautiful moments
unforgettable memories

a rewriting of your life
bonds that cannot be broken
spontaneous surprises
laughter and tears

this is the creation of a new family
that I am blessed to bare witness to
partake in and observe
the miracle of parenthood

Oh Darlene ~~ I didn't expect tears, but they came as I read this wonderful news. I remember when I first started blogging and Denise designed my blog banner how she was desiring a child so badly!

I am so happy for her, and the entire family that will love this new little member, and it will become as special as all of you!!!

Pictures soon..... ((I'm all smiles))

BTW your card came today, and Pastor Dad and I were thrilled to get it and to hear you are having some better days... Yeah for a late fall.

Hugs and Kisses my dear
Wanda Mom
