“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

New Life Taking Shape
I have to say, I am soooo PROUD of her and of each of the girlies. It is not easy adjusting to a new life, new ways of doing things, new ideas, and changing everything around.
But these girls, each of them, have stepped up to the plate and hit home runs this week.
We have had doctor's appointments and eye appts. and Sarah has a horrible rash from head to toe due to some sort of food allergy...poor girl.....
Alli handled a 2 plus hour eye appt. and just did so well. She then spent a good amount of time today with Daddy and Anna, because Erika and Sarah had an appt with the eye doctor and the rash doctor.
Daddy said Alli did so well.... and she was smiling all day. He said, "You look like a happy girl!" and She said, "I am daddy!"
I can see that she has really relaxed today. She has been funny and silly and doesn't seem nervous or guarded at all. So proud of her.
