FFF~Oh Give thanks~

The Friday Theme is "OH GIVE THANKS!".....

Just a perfect theme Hannah

since this weekend (2morrow) is our 3 Year Forever Family Day(Thats the day Abby became ours!)

SO much to be thankful for this weekend...Where do i start?

I Give Thanks for the 3 other families who shared in the joy of bringing our babies home!

AND YES i still keep in touch w/ each one of them!

I Give Thanks to Abbys Foster Mother for taking care of her for 6months..

How hard it must have been to let her go!
I Give Thanks to Abby's Birth Mother...

I have 3 bio children and thinking of what she did BLOWS my mind!

She entrusted US, total strangers to give her baby a better life!!!

And lastly I Give Thanks for Abigail
