It was a Merry Christmas!

* To hear the music on the video, just scroll down and push pause on my play list.
* Also, you should know that every time Ren watches this video she claps and says "Yay!"  Precious!
About three years ago Third Day came out with the song Merry Christmas.  It is a song being sung from the perspective of adoptive parents waiting for their child.  I remember being at a Thirday Chrstmas concert, very pregnant with Henry P., (could be one reason he is our little musician).  When they sang that song I just wept for the little girl who would not be home with us for Christmas that year... Little did I know that it would be three more years before she would be home.  The beginning of the song says, There's a little girl trembling on a cold December morn, crying for mama's arms....  Our little Ren was found on a cold morning in December wrapped in a floral blanket outside of a medical building!  I am sure she was crying for her mama's arms.  And believe me that little girl is still crying for mama's arms.  That little bundle doesn't want me out of her sight.  She grabs my face and makes me look at her.  She kisses me and two days ago, she said, "I love you", which sounds like, "I uh oo".  And the most amazing thing about that was she told me first! 

If you haven't already seen this video, I hope you enjoy it.  It is just a summary of the last few months with Ren.  And I will leave you with a couple of pics of our "not so" snow angel!


  1. I love it!!!!!! I also love that your last picture from this blog was you two in the snow and the first picture from the last one was you two at the beach! :) So glad that now, when Ren cries for her mama's arms, they are there to hold her. She is certainly blessed.

    Don't stay away from the blog so long this time! :)


  2. I just watched the video again....I love it! Made me cry...your family rocks!!!!!!!!!


  3. Renee,
    The video is so precious! Just like little Ren says! You are definitely blessed and I know you know that, but Ren has been placed by God in the perfect mother's arms. That's the real blessing in all of this. I hope your new year with her, and that precious family of yours is amazing. Miss you and love you!
