Well, the sweet little baby we have been watching met her adoptive family this morning. We are thrilled that she now has a family, but we have also fallen in love with this little bundle and we are sad to see her go. Fostering over the last week has just given me a new perspective on adoption...I have been able to see what it is like to love on a child and then give the child to the family they belong to...it is a mixture of joy and longing. We take joy in knowing that sweet baby girl will be loved and cared for by her new mom and dad and big sister...we are also longing for the next baby that will bless our house. We love you sweet baby and are excited for your new life!

This last weekend we celebrated St. Patrick's Day at the Sedalia St. Patrick's Day Parade. This was your normal small town parade complete with tractors, 4H club members, llamas, and lots of candy. It was so much fun...her are some pictures from the festivities:
