Happy Tears 1


Here are a few things that give me happy tears:
1. Seeing this post. I have been following this Blacksburg, VA couple’s blog since finding them through the Reece’s Rainbow site. They were all set to adopt Riley, when someone from his extended family came to the orphanage and adopted him. They were then lead to Zara, who they have named “Lily,” and are currently in her home country and preparing to bring her home! Seeing the love they share will surely fill your eyes with happy tears as well.

 Love!
2. Speaking of Reece’s Rainbow… I have more great news. Do you remember baby Cliffy?
Well, if you haven’t heard, he’s getting adopted, and his family is also currently getting ready to bring him home. He will be named Joshua. Follow their journey here and you will DIE when you see their latest pictures and videos. He is absolutely adorable and looks SO happy!
This is my favorite pic. Love that face!

It warms my heart to know that he has found his “forever family” and I thank all of you that donated money to his adoption fund!

3. Father’s Day. We had a great time with my family this weekend and AJ loved watching baseball with Papaw Russ. She even tried to shout “SWING” and “HIT”! I bet he can’t wait to get her out on the field!

 Here are some of my favorite pictures with my dad over the years.
He has taught me so many things…how to pitch, how to EAT with all my heart, how to enjoy life, and most of all, that he is ALWAYS there for me, no matter what.
And, of course, I must say Happy Father’s Day to my own hubby, who is amazing with our little babe. I love this picture of them from when she was teeny tiny.
She loves him SOOOO much.
I saw this quote on Kelle Hampton’s Facebook and thought it summarized things nicely: 
“Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads we know. Thank you for proudly rocking out Baby Bjorns, carrying pink diaper bags and singing along to the grumpy old troll song…in public. Maybe someday your minivan will transfrom into a Ferrari. Until then…feel the love today.”
Love to all the daddies out there and hoping everyone finds their own moments of happy tears this week.

    Beautiful blog! Happy Tears are the BEST and are soooo touching! It's soooo amazing that you have been involved with Reece's Rainbow. You're an Angel and not everyone understands the importance of giving back and helping those less fortunate!
