Joseph Turner

Our son was dedicated to the Lord yesterday...What a very touching celebration.
I cryed as I thought of his Liberian mom and how great it would be if she could
see the remarkable changes in her son.I wore the necklace she gave me as a symbol
of her love for him.
Everyday is full of first for him.
I'm just thankful that I get to share in those first.
He LOVES me and there is no greater feeling..
He is a VERY loving child.. Someone once told me
"Joesph's greatest weakness(his heart)God will use to be
his greatest blessing" I believe this true..He has a heart for
our family. He has a heart for anyone who is crying..He has some
of the most loving qualities in a child his age I have ever seen
and I have 5 other kids before him....So for what ever reason God has set him
apart in more than one way..I'm excited to see where this Heart of his
takes him......and I'm thankful I'm on the journey with him..

P.s. My friend Kathy made these wonderful cakes and cookies for the
reception..She is awesome go take a look at her blog at

I am beyond thrilled that I found your blog. I cant believe it took me so long. I had to go back-all the way back to when you were in Africa. It seems like so long ago. All I can say is wow! How different JO looks compared to when I saw him in Liberia in August. He is doing great. And congratulations on the new baby.
