Day 29 - Introducing Alexandra Grace Morningstar

We are so very proud to introduce you to
Alexandra Grace Morningstar
Born April 12, 2007
Karaganda, Kazakhstan
Welcomed to the Morningstar Family February 17, 2009

And I ask Him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you'll be able to take in with all Christians the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:18-19


Day 2 of court was easy peasy rice and cheesy. We just showed up; heard speeches from the doctor, social worker, and prosecutor; the judge read out the contents of our dossier and bada bing - we're parents!

We have updated many of our Kaz blog postings with photos of our amazing little girl. All postings with an asterisk in the title (*) have been updated, and you can check them out to see more photos of beautiful Alexandra (aka Sasha, Sashka, Shuri, Shurka, or my favorite nickname, Sanka). Enjoy them, she's a cutie!!!

Jamie and Steve,

I didn't make it to Sam's birthday party yesterday, so I decided to look up on your blog for any news. Congratulations on the adoption of Sasha! She looks like she will fit in well with your family...she will be blessed with your love. We can't wait to meet her. We will be praying for the time remaining and the time the boys hopefully get to spend with Sasha.

Take care, Karla Knappenberger (I see there is another Karla:) )
