Gifts from God

"I prayed for this child (children in our case!), and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." 1 Samuel 1:27-28

Sunday our gifts were dedicated. We prayed for our kids when they were just specs in our eyes and are thankful to all of you for praying for our miracles and encouraging our family! It was such a special day for us to give thanks for our babies and give them back to God. We have been surrounded by prayers and support from so many and know it takes a village to raise a child (especially multiples!). Each of you have been so instrumental in their lives and we pray you continue! :)

Proud family!

Afterward we went out for family pictures since they were already dolled up! I was really thankful they included Katelyn's bear so well! Here's a few of our favorites.

I can't thank you enough for all you've given to our family! Prayers, cards, encouragement, gifts, babysitting time, meals, EVERYTHING! We have been so blessed and want our children to remember each of you! God, we thank you for giving us these miracles, all 5 of our children! We vow to teach them about you and your love!

Wonderful! Congratulations on dedication day! It was such a tremendous day to give God the glory when we dedicated our kids, and I am sure it was the same for you. They look so chubby and cute:-)

I sooooo wish we could have been there! We would have, had we not been on the other side of the continent. The whole group looks beautiful!
