I Heart Faces: Best Face Photo


This week's theme at I Heart Faces is "Best Face Photo." When looking through some of the pictures I took over the weekend at my brother's house, I was drawn to this photo of my adorable nephew, Jorge. God used this special little guy to lead us on our adoption path. It was the moment when I first held him, just days after he came home from Guatemala, that I knew that our family would be formed through adoption. Thankfully, my husband knew in that moment, too. And now, three daughters later, I look at Jorge's sweet face and think of how far our family has come since I first held him in my arms six years ago. Oh, how I love this little guy.

What a wonderful legacy that began with Jorge. It is amazing to think about the wonderful blessings that flow when people step out in faith and obey the call of God. God bless your brother for his faithfulness! God bless you and Nolan for doing the same. God bless precious little Jorge!
Hugs,
Tisha
P.S. I am so glad that you and Leila made the Russian Coffee cake and enjoyed it! I wish I had some to go with my morning cup of joe right now. :)
