After being home 6 months ... going through three surgeries ... we finally had Isabella's dedication this past Sunday.  Our entire immediate family came, which was awesome!  She really soaked up all of the attention and enjoyed the day.  She wore a Chinese dress that we bought while in China.  She looked adorable! 

We are truly blessed to live in a country where we can worship God freely.  I really did not get the full impact of that until we traveled to China.  One Sunday night while we were there we gathered with a few other families and praised God in a hotel room.  It was an experience we will never forget. 

We are thankful that Bella will be able to freely choose to follow the Lord.  As parents, we will guide her and help her along her journey. 

And here are some pics from the dedication.  As you can see, she really hammed it up for the entire church.
