God has blessed us with more than we could ever need. He has not blessed us so we can have the latest iPad, game console or a new car. We have been blessed to be a blessing.

Keep up with our adoption journey and get a peek into the Hollingsworth household.

Wish I Had Time

I wish I had time to go through photos from yesterday and write all about our day... Eden's birthday. Let me just quickly hit the high points.

*Raine was sick and we spent over three hours at the doctor's office, getting chest x-ray, waiting for her Rx, etc. Raine was asleep while Seth and I decorated cake balls and cupcakes.

*Her fever broke by the time we got ready to go out to eat, so we still celebrated Eden as planned.

*It felt weird and sad to celebrate my one year old's first birthday when we've only had her in our family for 3 months.

*I think it was the fact that we had a plate full of cake balls and cupcakes with a  "1" candle for our brown baby that got us lots of attention at Mr. Bill's. Some anonymous person paid for our meal. We were so humbled.

All in all, it was a great day. Raine is feeling much better today. BTW: She was diagnosed with strep.

Oh yeah, everywhere we went (doctor's office, outpatient x-ray, outpatient registration, etc. etc.) the kids were sure to tell those that commented on Eden's cuteness that it was her birthday. They are so proud of their little sister.
