Yesterday, August 17, we celebrated our baby boy's second birthday. The kids have been with us for 9 1/2 months now, and we continue to be overwhelmed with the joy that they bring into our lives. Izaiah took his first steps one week ago today and, as you can see, is taking more every day. His final surgery to close his lip will be the last day of this month, one week from Friday. We deeply appreciate and covet all of the prayers that have gone out for us in this last year. We continue to see the impact of those prayers in very real and tangible ways, as God continues to knit us together as a family through this wondrous miracle of adoption. Much love to all. -EnJ (nLnI!). :)
