Trinity was a little over a year, Courson was about six months old and healthily growing after his premature birth, when we discovered we would be adding to our family through adoption again with another baby girl. We decided her name months in advance of her arrival and while on vacation in Israel also discovered we were expecting. Daly Kay was ten years old.
This meant that soon after she was eleven we would have nine children. So begins our delve into the “If I hadn’t lived through it myself I’d say it was impossible” phase of our lives.
Liberty arrived in August and was given a name that carried my initials, LCR. Her adoption story is a private testimony between David and I that God really can do ANYTHING.
She was the most adorable baby as round as a bowling ball and grew to be a joyful, beautiful, intelligent and amazingly physically strong little girl. Liberty’s brain and thought process usually moves way faster than her mouth can move, so when she was learning to talk we have some of the funniest memories of her mispronunciations.
She also is what we call a “fast-twitch-fiber” kinda kid where her physical response time is laser quick and incredibly accurate. Between her fast-talking and quick-moving she can be quite a funny and entertaining little angel.
Liberty taught us an awful lot as parents, as maturing adults. God did some of his greatest work in both David and I as we had to trust Him every step of the way through the adoption process and grew us in our strength as a family once Liberty came into our lives.
