My Forever Family






Saturday, June 6, 2009

We got to go to the temple today to have our little girl sealed to us forever. I have to say, I feel so lucky to be able to have seen both my babies in white inside the temple! My chaperon said it is our reward for everything we had to go through to adopt her. It was such a special experience. Nothing compares to the awesome feeling and power of a sealing. I felt the Spirit so strongly, and Dustin and Audrey looked like angels. When Dustin came into the sealing room he kept on saying, "Is this the flying room?" My dear friend Ann suggested that maybe that meant something because the veil is so thin to little children. I'd like to think he could see angels. He also kept calling Audrey and I princesses. I was so overwhelmed with love for my little family. Having Audrey's little hand on the alter was so precious. It definitely strengthened my testimony of families and temple work. My amazing Grandma surprised me again and was sitting inside the sealing room when we walked in. She drove all the way from Calgary just for the day so she could be there for the sealing. I have to say how much I love and appreciate my Grandma for coming to every special occasion. My sister and her husband also came down for the day which made it even better.

Tim's parents were there too, and we have been having so much fun with them this weekend. We've gone to the Science Factory, Hendricks Park, and had tons of great food and laughs. And then we topped it all off with a great trip to the temple.

Thanks to Brain and Ann, James, and Chris and Tricia for coming all the way up to support us. It was special to see you all there. And thanks to everyone else who wanted to be there, but couldn't! We still felt all your love!
