MCKLINKY BLOG HOP - FAVORITE PHOTO


ONCE ONLY A DREAM

The BLOG HOP that I joined on Friday was a huge success, was tons of fun and I met a lot of new people. This week's BLOG HOP is all about your favorite photo. Each week there will be a new theme.

This is my absolute favorite photo I have of Tony and Halainah. It was captured in our backyard. Tony and I dreamed of having children for 10 very long years. After 10 years of praying and going through 3 failed cycles of Invitro, we finally became parents through God's grace and adoption. The simple things in life like holding our daughters hand and going for an afternoon stroll has so much meaning to us. We waited a long time for our miracle daughter. We savor every minute of every day with our treasure.
