Twice Adopted

Lily has now been twice adopted. Yesterday our Heavenly Father called her into His family in the sacrament of Holy Baptism, uniting her with her Savior Jesus and creating faith in her heart through water and the Word of God.

In the top picture are her sponsors. That's Julie's brother John on the left, cousin Jan Johnson (my China traveling partner and parenting coach) in the middle, and her husband Rich on the right.

We had a little gathering later on in the afternoon. All the activity seemed to really wear the Pinger out, which was a good thing. She slept the night through for the first time since we got home, except for a brief half hour around midnight. We'll see if she can make it two nights in a row.

Hopefully she'll sleep. Doesn't take much to make a habit with the little ones, just like the pantry trick!!!

Welcome to God's family, little one!

oops, forgot to tell you. You can easily add the new blogs to the scrapbook. Let me know if you need ideas. H Bartelheimer
