Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

When Isabel was born I wondered what she would think when she was older and realized that she was not a twin like the boys. I actually felt bad for her because the boys always had each other and there she was, in her crib all alone! Well, she apparently felt the same way because from the time she could talk she wanted to know where her sister was. She would cry at night because the boys had each other to share a room with and "I have nobody with me" she would tell me. She promised that she really, really wanted to share everything, except her beloved blankie, with a sister! When we told her we were going to adopt a baby girl she could not have been happier. We started this process 2 years ago and she has waited, not so patiently sometimes, for the day we would bring her sister home to her!

Paul and Chelsea, I am so happy for you and your family. When Regina shared the news with me a couple weeks ago I couldn't wait to contact you and express my joy, and then time got away. I'm so sorry I haven't contacted you sooner, and yet, now I'm seeing beautiful photos of your daughter and I'm happier I've waited for this moment because earlier you hadn't completed your family. Now you have Claire with you. She is adorable and I couldn't be happier for you. Nothing but smiles when I read your blog entries. Keep posting pictures! Hope to see you at the grocery store (or Moe's or some other fun West Ashley spot)!!! Take care. Hugs, kisses, and best wishes!!
