Oh my goodness gracious.
I was kind of a wreck Friday.

It was R.'s birthday.
It was also exactly one year since David had had a dream,confirming that we should adopt R.
And the 17th (yesterday) was the anniversary of my due date for our daughter, Celeste (who died when I was 20 weeks pregnant).

I was thinking of all of these things when David told me that we got a phone call from Deb.

At that point, I was pretty much a puddle on the floor.

My plan had been to make a fabulous Ind*an meal to celebrate R.'s special day.
But, in my state of mind, it was lucky that we got frozen pizza and Safeway cupcakes (I did manage to make a salad, at least!!).

So, last night, Yana and I decided that we should make the planned-for Ind*an meal for our Sabbath celebration.

Okay, my children are much more creative than I am. Maybe Yana should be a food artist! I love the chopped pepper design!

It was so yummy! And now I am feeling inspired. I really want to master some simple Ind*an dishes that I can make when R. comes home. I soooo want her to feel some level of comfort by having familiar foods to eat. Plus, we all LOVE Ind*an food.

I have some deeper things to share soon. I hope that I can muster up the energy to write about what God is doing in my heart and mind. Our Father is so very good, isn't He?!!!

Oh, Anna is really wishing her mom would master some Indi@n dishes! Perhaps you could have Lily email some to her...hint, hint! I've been so busy trying to master gluten-free for my daughter Emma that I've been lax about trying new things. We are continuing to pray for your guys and your adoption!!! Jill

Oh my...that dinner looks so yummy. :) And yes, Yana is quite the artist, isn't she. I love that girl.

I am glad you are feeling better.....we made quite the pair this weekend. At least you didn't watch 5 Bollywood movies....


I love you!

Mmmm -- would you consider sharing your recipes? That looked like a delicious meal! What a profoundly emotional day for you . . . I will have to read your previous posts and catch up on more of your story.

It looks so good! I would have loved to share that dinner with you all. I'm so sorry for your loss, Sara. Our times of remembering are good for us, I have recently found.

Oh my, Sarah, what a week. What a neat children. I am always amazed when I allow my children to do at what happens. They can do so much more than I realize or expect and usually it comes because I am unable for some reason, my weakness allows their strengths to shine through. What a beautiful meal. What a beautiful heart.

MMmmmmm, we must be having the same "pregnancy" cravings (1) to eat Indi*n food (2) to have our daughters home (3) to have our children home!

Happy Birthday, V!
