Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God
So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them?

We have been touched by God's fingerprints in the people that we know and have met in the past year. Tomorrow July 18th marks one year since we were chosen to be parents! I remember the day so clearly. How could a person not remember such a wonderful life changing day. It was early afternoon while I was trying to catch a nap because I had a sinus infection when my cell phone started ringing (and you know how it is when you are awakened by a ringing phone-you are not fully aware of your surrounds or that is how it is for me anyway). It didn't take long for me to be full awake when on the other line Anissa, Adie's mom, was saying we would like for you two to be the baby's parents. (A special Thank You goes to our wonderful friend Kathy who helped bring us together!!!) I was thinking am I having a wonderful dream or is this true but wait I am fully awake now. I told her that we needed to meet and talk but the next day we were going north for a family reunion so I thought it would have to be Sunday. After I got off the phone I ran outside to where Scott was working on our landscaping and said WE ARE GOING TO BE PARENTS! We were both very excited! Scott asked when we were going to meet them. I said I'm not sure since we have the family reunion tomorrow. He said call them back and see if they can come for dinner tonight! I called Anissa back and she said that they could come for dinner. OH MY! I had lots to do in just a short few hours. I have to clean the house fast and figure out what to make for dinner. Scott wanted to grill chicken and I want to make lasagna but either way I have to run to town to get a few things. We decided on lasagna which was good because it is one of Adie's favorites. We spent 6 hours that evening visiting and getting to know one another. What a evening! It was amazing! After they left Scott and I just couldn't believe how much they felt like they were meant to be a part of our life. It was about 2 to 3 week later that we met Sebastian and his mom. I will go into more about them on the 1 year mark of meeting them.

Here is God's fingerprint!
Our amazing son who has LOTS of people in his life that LOVE him so very much!

Remember in my last post about the new funny face that he makes! The picture above shows just how cute and funny he is!

This picture he is just being his cute self!
And his cute little feet with his new sandals on from his Grandma G (Sebastian's mom)!
