blog friends and baby

I have been blessed to meet some fabulous friends after having stalked known them online for years.


Last week, I had the absolute pleasure of spending a few hours chatting it up with Ali from MyGodGivenMissionField and her husband. Oh. my. word. Ali is so beautiful both inside and out (and has the coolest green-brown eyes EVER)! Ali and Adam are such kind hearted, intelligent, sweet, and amazing people that truly love the Lord.

AND guess what?! *I* got to be the first not-the-mommy-and-daddy person to hold their newly adopted baby boy! (Yup, I am totally bragging!)



Eeeeeeeeeeee! Brown eyes, brown skin, expressive face, precious curly hair... perfect in every way.


Thanks Ali and Adam for sharing him with me! Y'all blessed me beyond words!

Susan said...

I know Ali IRL too. She was my first bloggy friend I met IRL because she lives the closest to me. So don't give up Christine, you may meet her someday too as she lives close to you too. Great pictures Marsha, and how fun you got to meet Samuel. I love his smile.

What a SWEET blessing! I wondered if you two would get to meet irl. Fabulous. I'm a little jealous though... I want to meet both of you irl too :)

Squeeeeeeelllllllllll!!!!

I'm squeeling with you!!

Samuel is one of the CUTEST babies I have ever seen. NO LIE! I admit, my breath was a bit taken away from a tiny hint of jealousy. seeing a newborn and wanting one so badly....

What a fortunate little man to get to grow up in such a fine family.

Thanks for posting this!!
