I Love To See The Temple!

Where do I start?...Friday was one of the most beautiful days I have ever experienced. I cannot find the words to describe how wonderful it was to go to the Snowflake Temple and have these six beautiful children sealed to Brandon and I for Time and All Eternity. It was amazing to have my dad perform the ordinance. What a blessing it is to have temples to bind us together forever. I know that our children were sent to us and that they were meant to be ours. I have seen the Lord's hand in these children's lives. It was horribly hard to have Amelia, Zach, and Caden taken from us for a year, but had they not left we would never had gotten the priviledge to open our hearts to Eva, Michael, & Paul. I may not ever understand why the Lord chose Brandon and I to take care of a few of his amazing children, but I will forever be grateful that it is us that gets to LOVE & CARE for them. They truly are a blessing to us and have changed us for the better!!!

Congrats! I am so happy for you and your eternal family! (I am Mandi Crandell's sister.) We will be finalizing our adoption this month and I am looking forward to having our own little girl sealed to us.
