Celebrating Moms ~ i heart faces

This sweet photo represents a miracle.  Ashley faced MANY fertility challenges and it became very clear that she would not be able to have children.  But God had other plans. He used the grace of adoption to bring this precious miracle into the arms of her mom and dad. In this picture, it is very obvious that Finley Grace is adored and loved beyond measure by her mom and dad.0046 

I celebrate this mother today on her FIRST Mother’s day! And I would like to leave you with a poem she wrote:

Sweet Finley Grace (to the tune of Amazing Grace)

Sweet Finley Grace, how sweet the sound

That saved a woman like me

I once was barren, but now I’ve found

The gift God sent to me.


T’was God who taught our hearts to fear

To wait and just believe

‘Cuz in His plan she was so near

This gift that we received.


Through many trials with ups and downs

We learned to overcome

T’was Finley Grace, with an angel’s face

The gift that we brought home.


The Lord had promised good to me

His word my hope secures

He will, our shield and portion be

As long as life endures.


On Christmas day, to us you gave

Your One and Only Son

From our sins He came to save

This gift for everyone.


Sweet Finley Grace, how sweet the sound

You made a mother of me

My heart swells full with every pound

Of love for you baby!!
