sorry but old navy has some really cute PJ's


Chris and I were talking last night just about how our lives changed recently and so suddenly. We were planning and preparing for years but we never could have imagined how much richer our lives could have been. Capo just brings so much joy to our home and to so many around him. My co-workers have all declared themselves god parents, our church family has just fallen in love especially the YW and the branch. And our fostercare family has been so wonderful and supportive.

We knew that fostercare was what we were supposed to do and now that Capo is here we know why but we had no idea that we would met so many wonderful families, workers, nurses and doctors that would become our close friends and change our lives as well.

Visits will never be easy for me and truly I think it is because that is the time when I have no control over what happens to him and half the time I do not even know what has gone on. But I am learning to care for and love Capo's birth mom. She really needs someone who cares for her unconditionally. We feel much more prepared now for lds family services if that is where we are led to next. For now we are so full of love for this little boy and gratitude for our Heavenly Father for the joy that he is and the miracles that we see. So many little things have happened where we recognize the hand of the Lord working in our lives but especially in his life. We are simply able to witness it and enjoy the ride.

"As long and laborious as the effort may seem, please keep shaping and setting the stones that will make your accomplishment a grand and imposing spectacle. Take every advantage of opportunity to learn and grow. Dream dreams and see visions. work toward their realization. Wait patiently when you have no choice. Lean on your sword and rest a while, but get up and fight are laying the foundation of a great work--your own inestimable future." -Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
