IF NOTHING EVER CHANGED, THERE'D BE NO BUTTERFLIES. Author Unknown

The girls really enjoyed watching their tiny little caterpillars grow into beautiful butterflies, so when I told them that we needed to release them they weren’t exactly thrilled.
Taking one last look at the butterflies
This part of setting them free was actually fun!
Notice the butterfly perched on DD’s finger.
Enjoying its new found freedom!
When I think of our adoption process it reminds me of this butterfly quote: What the caterpillar calls the end of the world (abandonment), the Master calls a butterfly (new life through adoption). Richard Bach
We are so thankful these two beautiful little butterflies fluttered into our lives!

Beautiful! When we were planning Spicy Girl's room while in the adoption process, I chose butterflies because of their meaning...new life. I saw S.G. as giving us a new life, and us giving her a new life.

Happy Easter!! Love and miss y'all!!

I believe that the whole family would repeat your feelings about adopting these two beautiful little girls. It is hard to believe that we all thought you were crazy when you first broached the subject of adopting DD. I am so glad that you didn't pay any attentions to our opinions. Love you all. Come to see us soon. Love, Aunt Muhl
