Isn't She Beautiful...

Wanted to share some of the wonderful pictures my sister took of Michelle (Bailey's birth mother) and her family, the other night. Isn't she just beautiful in these pictures?
These were taken right after our family finished taking theirs.
This is David, Michelle, and Kathryn

The two of them...
They do not have but one, family picture when Kathryn was much younger. I don't think they have any of just the two of them.


I love this one of Michelle


Kathryn looks so pretty here. She is a year younger then Bailey.


Now, after they finished having their family photo's taken, I hugged Michelle and said ..." Merry Christmas" And called Bailey over to her and Kathryn. You can see by the photo that Michelle was almost in tears from joy. I have to admit, I was tearing up myself.
She's never had a photo taken of the two daughters she's birthed.

Bailey, Michelle, Kathryn

Then, we took one of Bailey and Kathryn.
How precious! It turned out so sweet and I know it's touched Michelle to see these half sisters together like this.

Bailey and Kathryn

Both of us were still rather emotional after the photo shoot and we decided to have one taken of the two of us together. I love this lady so much. Without her in my life I would have never been a mother and the heart ache and tears that consumed me, would have never been healed. This woman means the world to me and I could never thank her for all she's given me.
We started our journey in fear of each other and look how much God has molded us together in love.
What a difference the Lord has made in both of our lives.
I will frame and cherish this picture for the rest of my life.
God is so good!

Both of Bailey's Mothers

Thank you Jesus for setting my life upon a course I could never have imagined to be so blessed.
I trust You with my family and my cherished dreams of being a mother.
You...
have been so good to me!
