On my heart this morning...I am so GRATEFUL and BLESSED by God to have healthy children. My heart breaks for mommy's this morning who sit beside a hospital bed praying for a miracle. I vow to never take for granted my strong, beautiful healthy children and will thank the Lord daily for His hedge of protection around them. With tears in my eyes and joy in my heart, I thank God for my soon to be Hausmann clan.
I love you my knight! I gave you my heart almost 7 years ago and everyday reminds me of why I did so. Our life, built on love and commitment, has brought us to where we are today. Happily married, beautiful home, quiver full and dreaming of our future. I could never have picked a better soulmate to match my heart's love for children and desire to help others. You are the best father and I love you dearly for your sacrifices to make my dreams come true.
I love you my Super teen for being strong and mature, for making amazing choices and being my right hand girl...you are one in a million!!! I am inspired by your love and zeal for life, despite the hard years behind you. I love your open heart for more kids and your desire to help them. I love your creativity and countless ideas on how to make life better. I love that you want to be apart of our family. Ali, you were made to be my forever girl:)
I love you Miss Kayci J, distance is all that is between us, you are so smart and so caring of all the children that come into our home. I think of you everyday and my heart breaks everytime I see your empty bed. I pray, dream and hope for your future. I love your tender heart and obedient spirit. You were and will always be our first joy...our number one!!
I love you my miracle, my lexi lou, my laugh, my entertainment, my thinker, my mini me...you are the most sharing, loving 4 year old I've ever met. You are a giver and beauty shines from your heart. Your wit and joy in life keeps my heart happy. Your big blue eyes sparkle with happiness everyday. I love our sweet bond and am so proud you are my baby girl.
I love you my boy...my son! You are so sweet, compassionate and so protective of all your sisters...you are soft and sensitive and will make the best daddy someday. You are my overcomer, my achiever and I smile at your dedication to a process. I love your thankfulness, your tiny "i love you's" come just at the right moment in my day. You are a dream come true little man!!
I love you my baby. As the tiniest little human in my life, you make the most impact on me. You are goofy and adorable all at the same time. You are my sidekick, my smart pants. Your sometimes stubborn attitude makes me giggle. Your sweet love and want for your daddy makes my heart melt. You have come so far in your little life and I can't wait to see what your future holds.
To all my future children: I am here! I am waiting and dreaming of the moment you enter your last home. We will be your last stop, your last move, your last hello. We will help you pick up the pieces of your broken life and slowly mend them back together. With love, guidance and peace...you will become a strong, independent soul. We will love you to the moon and back, never questioning what happened in your past. Your slate will be clean and we will design together new memories. I have never met you, but I love you already. May our paths cross shortly, for I cannot wait to begin our lives together.
This is the fortune I received in my cookie the week Joel and I were "deciding" to do foster/adoptive care. I have always kept it!!
