This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Quilt #3 and Quilt #4

Grandmothers and roses are much the same. Each are God's masterpieces with different names.

-- Author Unknown

Well, thanks to two very talented, dedicated and patient grandmas, both of our little girls now have their very own hand-made quilts.  The design is the same as the first two quilts, but the boarders are a little more feminine for our girls.  Making a quilt like these is such a big undertaking.  From tracking down all the squares that were necessary, to cutting and trimming and sorting it all out, to stitching and ironing, to tying and binding... there's nothing easy about it.  We are both fortunate to have talented and crafty mothers.  But we're really lucky to have them because of the great deal of love they have poured into our lives for the past 30 years, and the great deal of love they are already pouring into their grandparenting.

Wow - it looks like you tracked down all the squares to match what people sent you before? That is a huge project in itself! The new quilts look so pretty.
