Our Beautiful Autumn

Autumn has a special story. One that is worth sharing. One that is her testimony of God's great love for her. One that says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". This little girl was born in China and brought on loving wings by God our father, to us. She was born with a cleft lip and palate but by the time she was 2 1/2 years old, she was also very delayed. Low muscle tone, could barely walk, couldn't stand up if she fell down. She was non-verbal, angry and yet oddly full of love as well. Within a year she was starting to speak, riding a bike, and by the next year was swimming, learning ballet and talking more and more. She has been home with us for 2 1/2 years, is turning 5 in just a few weeks and I am amazed at her beauty, her strength and the depth of her love. I'd like to share these progressive photos of our baby girl, Autumn.

We love you Autumn. God's light shines upon you and all around you. You shine bright in the universe for your maker!
