Miracles happen every day and I have always been a believer in that. However, it is in the times that you get to see a miracle happen so close to you that you can't help but being overwhelmed by the sovereignty of a mighty God who wants only the best for his children. My friend Leah Smith Lamphron and I have always known each other. Her mom was the one that taught my mom to sew for me when I was little & they have always been friends. Leah and I have never had an opportunity to cross paths, until recently. Matt and I found out that Leah and Luke lived in Fredericksburg and were so excited that we would have young couple friends to hang out with. Just at last months bunko, Leah and I were talking about when we wanted to have kids, different personal situations and realized that we both had WAY more in common than we ever imagined. Needless to say, we become fast close friends and truly believed that God had put us in each others life for a firm reason & were so excited to reconnect! She told me that night that she and Luke had felt called to adoption and that they were seeking different options and were really excited. A miracle happened and from the time that they got all their paperwork in to a few days later-- they were chosen by a mom in Salt Lake City! She was due to have her baby Tuesday, March 22nd and wanted them to come out there and they would get to be there for the delivery. Literally in two days, they found out they would have a son born! It was such an exciting time for them and I am so thankful that I got to be a part of it. Lucas Patrick Lamphron was born on March 22nd and Leah got to be in there for the birth.. they had a wonderful time getting to know the Mom and she gave Lucas to them with no hesitation. They got back last night and I am hoping to meet him today! I am soo happy for you all and thank you for letting me be a part of this miracle! Can't wait to watch him grow up! Love you!

what a blast we all had in NOLA! It was so much fun to visit Dane and we all had such a wonderful time. I had only been once before and Dana was such a great tour guide. It was the most beautiful weather which made the trip even better. We went to eat beignets at Cafe Du Monde and they were FABULOUS! Yummy! We went and walked around the French Quarter and saw some scenes you can only see in New Orleans :) We ate great food and all got to catch up which was so much fun! I am so thankful for my dear friends, Dane, Em and Lindsay! Hoping to plan another fun trip soon!!!
