{What a fabulous day...


What a great Memorial Day weekend! We feel so blessed to have been able to take baby Sam to the temple! It was one of the best, most memorable experiences of my life. President Baer was our sealer and he did a really fabulous job. He said some things that really hit home for me. After he talked to us for a little while they brought our boys in one by one and we left a family forever! It makes me a little bit sad for those of you that don't get to take each of your children to the temple to have them sealed to you. It is a priceless experience!

After the sealing we met up with Megan (Sam's birth mom). It was such a joy to be able to see her again! She truly is an amazing woman. Words can not express the gratitude we feel for her in our lives! We were also thrilled that her aunt was able to fly here from Texas to share the day with us. She has three adopted nieces and nephews of her own so it was special for us to have her with us. All in all it was a perfect, perfect day! I am so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and for all the blessings that I have received because of it.
