Graduating Melissa

You know when you have a baby, hold her for the first time, caress her tiny fingers and toes, and wonder what she will become? I remember holding baby Melissa and praying that she would grow up to be His child.  My baby girl graduated this week from High School and I couldn't be more proud of her! She's such a fun, loving, silly, caring, smart person! And most of all she knows she is His child most of all.  I'm so thankful for the time we spent homeschooling her - since she was with me so much she is also a very good friend of mine!

Her little sisters LOVE her!

It's officially, OFFICIAL! She's done!

She didn't want a traditional cake so we made several fruit pies and homemade ice cream! Yum!

We picked this weekend to celebrate (great thing about homeschooling - even the flexibility to graduate when you want) since all the grandparents would be in town. So special to have them here!

She has some wonderful plans coming up and knows she's being called back to China to work with orphans.  I'm going to miss her so much! We are praying for her to life an extraordinary life for Christ and can't wait to see where she will go.
