Little Mai

Jolea's birthday is upon us, and on January 31st she will turn 4 years old. It is hard for me to believe that I have missed out on so much of her life up until now. It seems as if I've always had her. I guess I have in my heart. She has come so far since we brought her home in July. She loves her family. Including her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is so excited to get to see them. Each night at bedtime I say a prayer with Jolea. Joey or I used to say it for her, but she now says it on her own. I don't really understand much of it when she says it, but last night I could hear the names of Ma, Daddy, Luke, Brea. I wondered, was she thanking God for us? All we usually say at bedtime with her is the "now I lay me down to sleep" prayer. I was amazed to hear her saying her own prayer,and we were the ones she was praying for. God has given us an amazing little girl.

Here are some pictures that I have of Jolea when she was younger. In the youngest photo of her, I think she is around 1 year old. Enjoy!
