Makai Kimber Johnston

"An adopted child isn’t an unloved child; rather, one that was loved so much by someone who was willing to sacrifice her greatest accomplishment so that child could have more than just her love.  Someone who is willing to break her own heart to mend others; someone who watches others tears of joy through her tears of sorrow.

By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours.  An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary.  They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full." -Unknown

Makai Kimber Johnston.
So far, my favorite picture of her.
For those who may not know, my sister, Laura, and her husband adopted their daughter, Makai, a little over a year and a half ago. They had their 2 boys, Jaden & Camren, without any troubles. Then they tried for 5 years to get pregnant again with no success. Finally they were blessed to adopt this sweet girl who (I believe) was always meant to be in our family anyways. :)

You can read her story from my sister's blog hereherehere, and here. Seeing that the last time she posted, Makai was only a few months old and now she's 19 months old... I'd say it's time she updated. ;) Love ya Laura!

**So I had this post saved in drafts forever. I was planning on publishing the post on her birthday, March 1st. However, I accidentally prematurely pushed "publish" tonight. I know that even if I push "revert to draft" and then "publish" later, the post will be put here in this time/place and no one will see it. So I guess I'll just publish it now. Enjoy the randomness and cuteness of this little girl who's managed to wrap us all around her little finger.**
