Life as we love it
Thank you for the prayers for our first week with Rhoda. I am not sure how to adequately describe what a joy she has been to us. Is there anything more sweet than that big white teethed smile? I looked at her today during dinner and just marveled at the reality that she is "our" daughter. You would think that bathtubs are the greatest thing in all the world by the way she smiles and sings and plays during her bath time. Life is still so new and different and at times, overwhelming for her. It is challenging and we are daily praying for wisdom. But, day by day, she is getting used to being Jennifer Rhoda Allen and day by day we are learning how to love her and parent her. (More on the name tomorrow... It deserves its own blog!) Thanks again for your prayers and kind emails.
