Thankful Thursday

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Miss Kate Emerson's 2nd Birthday Splash Party is tomorrow morning so I am tres' busy getting ready but wanted to quickly let you know about two families that have been united in China this week.

Sharon is a  fellow blogger friend and such a sweet person. She and her husband are in China now with their new daughter, Bailey. If you have time, go read about their journey. Here is a photo of Sharon and Bailey:

Also, congratulations to our good friends, Karen and Doug!  Karen is also in China now and has had beautiful Becky for a few days. We are so thankful that everything is going well for both of these families.  Forever families are such a blessing. I am so thankful that Karen is allowing me to share their blog.  Please pray for Becky as she adjusts to her new life.  You all know how tough that first week can be.

Introducing the beautiful Becky!

Another very special family is celebrating the anniversary of their Forever Family day today too!  Go wish them a special day and see the beautiful page that the Pixel Fairy Princess created in honor of her daughter.

Miss Kate seems to have a little cold or runny nose----which is par for the course given this is her big week (party and birthday). Thank you Staci for her "beauty kit" (yes, I gave it to her today to keep her busy).  She loves blow drying her hair!

My creation

Kate just woke up and has obvious bed this beauty kit came just in time;)

Mirror, mirror in my hand, who is the fairest in the land?


  1. Hope the party is wonderful!
    Praying all the preparation is enjoyable and Kate is agreeable.
    Caitlyn gets severe bed head too.

  2. Oh, sweet blessings to both of the forever families!!!
    ...And a very Happy 2nd Birthday to precious Miss Kate!!!

  3. Happy Birthday to little Kate!! I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating your sweet blessing!

  4. I so love the hedge hog shirt! Did big brother find that sassy number for her? Happy Birthday Kate Emerson!!!

  5. One of my favorite things is reading blogs of people in China right now. Thank you for the gift of reading the blogs of your two friends. What a precious blessings they are experiencing! I am so happy for them!

    Sure hope the party goes well. EK has had a runny nose for about 3 weeks now- allergies. Hope Kate feels great for her big day. And love the pictures of her fixing her hair. EK has a blow dryer and loves to work on everyone's hair.

  21. Hi there!
    The new look is lovely.
    Sharon is very special and I have been following her journey to Bailey. Little Becky is just beautiful and so young, I think it's wonderful that she has been united with her forever family.

Thank you for your kindness.
