Yesterday something wonderful happened in our family.

I've shared with you over the years my deep love for my only grandchild.  I call her Miss K for privacy reasons even though I love her given name of

It means Beautiful One.

Ten years ago our sweet grandgirl was preparing to enter the world even though from the beginning she was already safely ensconced inside our hearts.  She couldn't possibly have known it then but she would soon take her place within a family unit who would never waiver in their love, support and belief in her.

She is that special.

A decade ago my Mr. AGPMan and I watched from behind the scenes as our son became a young father, then a man and then a beloved daddy.  He loved, supported and fought for his girl and has provided for her a wonderful home.  When he married our daughter-in-love, Sarah, four years ago she became our Miss K's momma.  We are blessed to have her in our family!

Although carried in the womb of another woman, yesterday the courts decreed that the adoption of our Miss K by our SarahGirl is legal and final and that she is, and always will be, our Miss K's mother...

Note to my Miss K:

Don't ever forget for a single moment that you've been CHOSEN!
I will love you forever,
Your only and forever,

Today I thank God for the difficult days of long ago because ultimately they became my friend.  They helped drive me beyond a place of ease and into a quiet place of constant prayer.
Yesterday the long awaited answer
to hundreds of prayers came.

Celebrating with a grateful heart!

Love to you...

I just came on and saw this post, sweetpea. I cannot tell you what my grandchildren and great granddaughter mean to us. We adore them!!! Absolutely adore them. With the 2nd great grandchild on the way, we are even more ecstatic. I told Mandy we wanted more great grands and she's accommodating us very quickly! LOL But they are truly life's blessings.

Now, that being said, can we please, please have a pix of Miss K and her forever mummy? Hmmmm, would love to see the family photo.

Hope you get more very soon, sugar. I don't know what we'd do without our grands and greats. Sounds like I'm talkin' 'bout biscuits, doesn't it? LOL

I'm thrilled for your new daughter-in-love because it takes more than giving birth to be a mummy...

Oh Rebecca... once again, the tears are just running down my face... I know aloy of what you have all been through, and I have prayed for all of you as well... and now, all of our prayers are answered... you know also what a special bond there is between dear Miss K and myself... each time I receive a card in the mail from her, my heart sings!... she is such a joy to me, as I have no children of my own, and my nieces are grown women now... this little girl has totally captured my heart as well... please give her a big HUG from her friend Julie Marie... and also to dear Sarah, who was truly meant to be her mama all along... love you all, Julie Marie

Dear Sweet Rebecca,

This post made me teary-eyed, Rebecca. I can only imagine how Sarah must feel to finally become her mama.

I don't know why this is striking such a nerve in me, but I blather as I write.

I think it is because I still remember so clearly my eternal adoption and my brand new family in Christ when I was 18. What a joy it was to know that the brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers that He gave me are innumerable.


Marilyn said...

I know she had your heart the moment you first saw her face! BTW, Sarah is a good name!♥♫

I know you must be very happy. My sweet niece came into our lives 20 years ago and never left. She also was carried in another womb but my sister and her loving husband brought Hope home when she was one week old and made it official at the age of four. I was fortunate to be at the ceremony but that little piece of paper didn't change what we already knew in our hearts. She was where God wanted her to be. Congratulation to your family and many blessings to come.

Blessings to you and yours.

In Him

Just getting a chance to catch up on your postings and read with utter joy about Miss K. and Sarah..
I am thrilled everything has settled into place and that beautiful little girl has a Mommie of her very own. I know Sarah feels
the same way. How blessed all of you are on this day...God shines HIS love on those who patiently wait for HIS timing.
May your precious family continue
to always be so blessed.
Love and big hugs, Francy

A truly joyous occasion for you, your family & yor pecious Miss K. It is wonderful she will know the comforts of calling one "momma". HIS blessings have touched your family in a most personal way. I pray her chosen momma will be blessed in all the years to come from an angel chosen for her by HIM. What an awesome gift indeed. Hugs and congratulations to your family. T
