    I love your new picture, or at least I haven't seen it before.

    I really like your new blog look.
    I have missed coming over and visiting with you.

    I loved your list of things about you, it was most interesting. I have that thing about ears also. My Dad had it too, that is probably why I have it.haha.

    You may not have ever seen your birth Dad but one day you will see your heavenly Father and He is the most important of all.
