Proud Mama
















I am so proud of this beautiful girl. J is growing up so fast. Looking at these photos is shocking for me. There's something about the last photo that really moves me. I can't believe how much she has grown and what a little lady she has become. She has helped me so much in the last couple of days. So responsible and respectful. If it hadn't been for J Puddin probably wouldn't have gotten fed or the dishes washed. She totally rocks my world. Everyone should be so lucky to have such an amazing daughter!

Isn't it amazing?

I've been up looking at pictures of when the kids first got here and now. I told Hubbins that we actually have made progress with them just from seeing the pictures.

I can still see the pic you posted of J in pigtails with food on her face and I look at these pictures and think what a beautiful young lady.

Good job to both of you.

J looks so wise, and peaceful, in that last photo. What a long way you both have come to get to that place! She's lovely.

These brought tears to my eyes, I think it's because she looks completely peaceful and content in all of them. Testament to the work you and she have put in. And, yes, in that bottom one, you can really get a glimpse of the woman she'll grow into. Our sons are 9 and 7, and I am starting to get little shocking but amazing sightings of the grown men they'll be -- shocking because these glimpses take me by surprise and remind me of how fast time is passing. Amazing because I truly like what I see them being and becoming. J is truly beautiful inside and out.

Love the pictures, they beautiful!! I love the 1st one! What a big help she is being, and that is great she has been able to/wanted to help you out!

There is something about the eyes on these kids that is so magnetic. J has it and I see it in Genea too. Like they are such fighters to have battled through their circumstances. She could have gone any direction but her awesome mom brought her to a place of hope and energy and life and that has made her a survivor.

Such a gorgeous "Sissy" you've got there!

Jo said...

The photos are truly beautiful. Your girl has come such a long long way.

marythemom said...

Wow Lisa! You can tell she's grown so much (on the inside especially). Don't you ever doubt what a huge difference you have made in this little girl's life! (And cherish these pictures when she hits puberty! *grin*)

What an amazing mom you are. Both of you are so blessed to have each other.

Love,
Mary in Texas

Such beautiful pictures. Of course J is such a beautiful girl or the pictures wouldn't be. Yes, her eyes just draw you in. I wish I could be invisible for a day to just watch you parent your girls. You are amazing to me.

Perspective RAD said...

She IS beautiful.

A said...

You. Are. Awesome.

She just looks like a different child anymore. Full of life and hope and happiness. Please have a photographer do some "before healing" picks of K, I think the difference will be so interesting.

My favorite is the profile one on the dock :)
