In my first post on the birthday party I did not tell you all the fun details of the party...so here it goes....We started out the big party with about 35 of our friends and family! It was so special to have them all here with us. Terry started out with a prayer for Grace and many laid hands on her also. He said one of the most special prayers I have ever heard and of course it made me cry! Then we took some pictures of Grace with her special table. When it came time to pick things from her tol table, she chose money first , (wealth), and then a spoon (great cook).."I think she was really saying she was hungry"!. Then we changed into some more comfortable cloths and had tons of food outside. We thought since it was nice and so many people that keeping all the food eating outside would be the best.
Below is Grace's birthday cake. The three candles symbolize our Family, her birth mom, and the foster Family. I have been so emotional with so many different feelings lately and gratitude for her birth mom and foster family that I felt lead to light a candle for them also today.
