Celebrating Maggie !

Last Sunday, I was given the Most Fabulous Baby Shower for Maggie.  I was so overwhelmed by all the food, beautiful decorations, fun adoption games and presents !

 It was my desire to celebrate Maggie with friends and family before we left for China. There was possibly no celebration at Maggie's birth, no baby shower or blessings given.  I can't wait for Maggie to watch the video and see the pictures from this shower.
 She was celebrated in such a festive,blessed, Southern way !

My very talented friend Allie made this photo board of Maggie.  I love it !!

These are just SOME of the incredible ladies who helped put the shower together.

A very beautiful sweet dress. I can not wait to see our girl in it !

Maggie's first purse - a  very cute patchwork, zebra purse.
  Oh !!! I love it !

My sweet friend, Malissa, is knitting a dress for Maggie.  It is made of the softest yarn and the prettiest blue.

I had a hard time trying to find the right words to express my gratitude for all the beautiful presents I received for Maggie.  How do you express your heart when it is overflowing with thankfulness ? I could feel so much LOVE from everyone.  It was like the BEST Christmas or Birthday party I ever had !  So, Thank you, from the deepest part of my heart - for celebrating Maggie and for your prayers.

Now, I am ready to go to China or I think I will bust !

Oh Kathy! What a beautiful celebration! So pretty!! I got a little misty eyed looking at the pictures - just the thought of a celebration for Maggie. It is such a sweet way to honor her and help prepare for her arrival. It seems most people in my life aren't interested in our process, and I will go as far as saying they may not even like the idea. So what wonderful friends you have! I am sure they are an incredible blessing to you.

I also want to say, you are GORGEOUS! I am totally jealous!

What a wonderful celebration. I'm so glad you had a great time. Now we just need to get Maggie home, and fast! Come on TA! I'm praying we get to travel together so Maggie & Ethan can play. That would be fun.
