the sweetest thing...

I've really been feeling some extra tender feelings toward my sweet little Ruby...especially the past couple of days. There just seems to be something different about her. Something truly unique and special. I don't know if it's because we had to go through so much to get her here, or if it's simply because she's my girl and I'm her mom. I'm sure all parents feel this way about their children; but to me, she really is the sweetest thing I have ever known. I know she has already touched many hearts in her short life time, and I also know that she holds a special place in the hearts of nearly all who know her.

I don't feel like I really need to plead my case on this one, but, for those not privileged enough to know her, here are just a few evidences of her pure, genuine, and untainted sweetness...

She is darling with her babydoll. I know I always say this Nicole, but she is just so precious.

I loved her little prayer too. You guys are such a sweet little family and such exemplary parents!

What a cutie! She has been trained by watching and listening to what you do and trying to copy it, what great parents you are!

Simply PRECIOUS in every possible way! God bless that sweet little Ruby girl. Everytime I see her, she makes me want to be a mom soooooooooo much. I need to live more worthy to earn such a blessing. Thank you so much for sharing this... It is so amazing. Everytime I'm feeling sad, lonely, depressed, worthless, and self loathing, you guys share something that Ruby did (does) that helps remind me of my Savior's love and, in turn, strengthens my testimony!

Hey Kim and John! I found your blog, well by blog surfing! I don't know if you'll quite remember me, but I just received your email a little ago about you two adopting! You have been in our prayers and I hope that it goes well. My brother and his wife are starting the process now. I looked through some of your posts and you two look SO HAPPY! Nicole your hair is so pretty dark!! I am glad you two are doing so well. Please tell Kim hi for me! I hope she is happy as well!! With much love... Lindsey (Jacobs) Forrest

She is such a sweetheart. I love her sweet voice. And she really does love her baby, and i am sure its a reflection of how much her parents love and show her love.
