I had one of those breath taking moments the other day.  We were leaving my parents house and Cadence was into her usual routine of walking a few steps, turning around, yelling "Bye-bye!" and repeating it all over.  Yes, the routine that takes us 5 minutes to get into the car once we walk out of their door.  And I as I watched her I felt in awe.  How in the world did we get so lucky?  All of the stars aligned and prayers were answered and someone sitting behind a desk matched her profile to ours.  How did we get so blessed to have this child brought into our lives?  My heart skipped a beat and I felt so deeply, at that moment, what a lucky, lucky woman I am.  On top of having two amazing children and a wonderful husband, Cadence was brought to our family.  I often feel a deep sense of gratitude for all that I have, but there are these moments that take my breath away and words feel inadequate to describe the depth of that emotion.
