“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)

I didn't want to be presumptious, so I said, "You put your mom's name here, your dad's name here...and she said, 'Does it have to be my blood relative? I don't know them? I said, "Sweetie, do you want to put their names? It is ok if you do! She said, not really, I just don't know what I'm allowed to put!
She was trying to be really HONEST! She didn't want to put something that wasn't true.
So I explained to her on the Minich family website, she was GRAFTED right in, as are her sisters. Adoption is just as IF you had the same blood~!
So she went ahead and filled it out with our family. I asked her later if she was ok, to make sure, and she reassured me that all was fine. She just wasn't sure what to do. :)
After that, she started on her actual photos. I was so touched that she made a page for EACH of her sisters and said such kind things about each of them. She said, "Alli is a GREAT little sister!" :) She had very kind things to say about Erika and Sarah.
So, when she and daddy went out tonight for their daddy daughter time, I suggested to the other girls they could do some scrap booking. They were so excited! This is a favorite thing for them during the colder months. It gets dark outside early, so they wanted something to do.
It was interesting watching them make their pages. They did a really great job. :)
