Layne's 5 today!!
I can't believe that my baby girl is 5!! It seems like just a short time ago, we arrived at the hospital, baby carrier in hand, to start one of the best adventures of our lives.
We had no idea, when we went through foster parent training, that we would be adding a permanent member to our family- but GOD did! We didn't know, that when we brought her home, we would fall crazy in love with her- but GOD did. We didn't know that she would overcome all of the hurdles that she has- but GOD did! We didn't know that God would use this precious child to open our hearts to more kids--but HE did!!
On this April 12th, we are so very thankful for our FUNNY, SWEET, BEAUTIFUL, Layne Belle Sweeney. We have learned much from our five years with her.
There are millions of children out there, like my Layne. Millions of children who will thrive if put in a family who loves them.. Take that leap of faith and step out to love a child- it's the best decision you could ever make!!
