Baptized X3

It was a big day today!!

Our three treasures were baptized!

We were all quite excited for this day!

So thankful that they are home and getting more and more settled with each day!
In fact it has been exactly 4 months!

The baptism was done after the church service!

Father Steve explained the process to the children!

This was Deacon Marc's first day!
He is in the seminary but will spend the summer at our church!

All the children love going to church and they do so well throughout the service!

Madeline and Luke were checking out the baptismal font and candle!

They canbe mischievous at times so I kept my eye... and camera on them!

This was also Deacon Marc's first baptism!

 He did a wonderful job and made it very special for the children!

It was much more intimate to just have us there!
And it left us a little room for a potential mistake 
; - )

I love this young mans energy and passion for our Lord!

The other children looked on intently!

There were a few giggles but they regained their composure quickly!

It was a blessed event!

Thank you Lord for welcoming our children into your family!

After the baptism we all went out to dinner and celebrated the children and Auntie Barbie!

Happy Birthday Auntie Barbie!

I have been catching up on your blog... I know you probably hate it when people say they don't know how you do it, or you are so amazing, or you are an inspiration, etc. :) BUT, those are the things I want to say to you! :) I know it is not as easy as all your beautiful pictures make it look. I know from having 4, that kids, just like all of us, are sinners, and it is downright hard some days, even with just 4. As I get ready to adopt Corrie, some days I get nervous. But when I read your posts, I am so encouraged! With God's help, I know we will be able to do this. I will be praying for you more faithfully as your family grows. Such a precious family it is!
