Happy Birthday Sophie!!!!

Happy 4th Birthday Sweet Sophie!!!!  What fun it has been to be in North Carolina for Sophie's Birthday.  We are visiting with our sweet friends, the Brannons.  We spent our last week in China with this family and we are now "forever friends"!!!!  

I am so thankful for Sophie's birth mother who delivered her safely into this world to be a part of our family.  I pray that she has peace in heart that her baby is safe.

Sophie's first Birthday Party

Sophie's birthday is July 24th.  We are going to be out of town so we had her party early.  It was such a joy to see how excited and special she felt.  We are blessed to have such a very talented friend , aka Nai Nai, who opened up her home for the party.   Nai Nai made her cakes and had more patience than I would have had in letting Sophie help decorate.  She got to place the edible pearls on the princess's dress. 

Two sweet girls came and painted the girls fingernails and toenails.  They did makeup and hair also.  Lots of glittery stuff!!!

It was a wonderful, fun day!!!  Thanks to all the special friends that were able to attend and help celebrate this special "1st" birthday with Sophie!

Lacey Cottage/Doctor visit

Sophie had a follow up appointment with her pediatric urologist this Wednesday in Montgomery.  We took the opportunity to eat lunch with some special friends and see her new business.  She has opened up a place where little girls and big girls can have parties.  It is really very cute and very girly.  Sophie had more fun swinging on the swing outside.  This is her favorite thing to do no matter where she is.

Our doctor's appointment showed no changes in the size of Sophie's bladder and confirmed that she still has hydronephrosis in her left and only kidney.  We will travel to Birmingham in 4 months to do more testing and a possible MRI.  Praying God's healing touch on Sophie.  She has come a long way and been through a lot in her little lifetime.
