Hayleigh's 5th Gotcha Day Anniversary!

Hayleigh 5 yrs. ago...
Her new family - i love how she is gazing at Taylor in this picture - she adores her big brothers...

Hayleigh now - a beautiful 5 yr. old girl:)

Wow! 5 years ago today god was faithful and blessed our family with a precious gift- Hayleigh Rae Fukai Vickerman. (She was only 10 months old but developmentally was about at a 6 month old level due to being in the orphanage.) During the process we held tight the bible verse: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Heb. 11:1 We hoped for a "healthy" baby girl but never knew until this day 5 yrs. ago that this precious child would be forever ours. Going through the adoption process was a huge leap of faith for us and i'm so glad that we listened to the Holy Spirit and let Him guide us. Adoption was never in "our plan" but it was in His plan for us. The past 5 yr. have been amazing to see how He took control of our life because we let Him. As Pastor Steve said today - Is God your pilot? He has awesome plans for you - are you letting Him speak to you about what they are? I used to be a person with a list of things that I wanted to have and accomplish - not anymore! And, i'm loving the fact that God is MY pilot. He has the heart that cares so much more about my needs.
Hayleigh has truly changed our lives. She is such a sweet blessing to us and everyone around her. She has such a caring heart. She loves her brothers & sister so much! Her brothers & sister also loves her - i love how they unconditionally love her - what an answer to prayer. God has used Hayleigh for so much more in this world - Many people think "she is so lucky" but in reality WE ARE THE LUCKY ONES! I love how the boys love to cuddle with her, read to her help her and encourage her. Love knows no boundaries.
Granted, we have had some trials with her but God has uses those trials to help US overcome issues that we need to deal with.
Thank you God for this wonderful belssing that you have given us. Thank you for trusting us to be her parents & to raise her.

ps. our plans today to celebrate are to go to Panda Express & then to get ice cream! yum!
