Don't you love babies? Everybody loves babies. (personally, I was always nervous around babies until I had my own)
My sister-in-law on the other hand has ALWAYS loved babies. I knew she would be a great mom. She was so comfortable with kids. She's basically just a comfortable person to be around! I'm so glad I got her as a sister-in-law. I wouldn't have picked anyone else.
A special bond we share has to do with her love of kids and my plans for adoption. I will always treasure the fact that Christy was in my wedding and that I was in hers. She along with Andrew's Mom and Dad knew from the very beginning that I wanted 3 kids. It was even mentioned at my wedding. I've always said I wanted 2 of my own and than 1 adopted one. At Christy's wedding, I was pregnant with Gibson. I figured Christy would have the next one and than the next one and then eventually I'd have another one and then start the adoption process.
If you know our family, than you know the twist.
Christy didn't have the next one. I DID! She DID have the next one after that, but not the way we all thought!
She and Daniel adopted a beautiful baby girl and now are about to celebrate the official adoption day of their beautiful baby boy.
Papa, has created a painting that he is selling on Ebay. The money he makes is to go toward the adoption cost.
Here's the link to Ebay so you can read his story and see the picture and maybe even bid on the beautiful painting.
