Autumn’s Wedding Pictures

Twenty-three years ago today, the Lord brought a precious treasure into the world.  She would arrive on the first day of Autumn for 1989…and surprise, surprise, the Lord already had prompted us to name her Autumn…how cool is that?

She would arrive in the ambulance as her birth mom was headed to the hospital – clearly reminding all who would know her that she was not about to do things the “normal” way.

Her birth mom had met us a few months before and would graciously hand her, three days after her birth, into our arms forever.  We would dance with this little bundle in our arms for months singing over and over and over, “You’re just too good to be true, can’t take my eyes off of you….Ohhhh Autumny, we really love you, oh yes, we do….”

 Autumn’s 2nd birthday
Daddy had closed his law practice and
we had moved to the East Coast for him to attend seminary….

In a dozen treasures {so far} she would be the only blue-eyed of the bunch.

Who knew?

Her life would have many twists and turns, many difficult patches, painful loss, horrific health issues, but in the midst of the struggles she would meet and one day marry the man of her dreams, a miracle-man, spared by God…

And so today, as we celebrate our Autumn Elizabeth’s birthday, her big sister Abi, who has is a world class photographer, put together a wedding slideshow…and I betcha there are enough wedding lovers out there, who will want to view the pictures…

Be warned, it’s beyond beautiful….and for you who know the Autumn and Karl story, and prayed for Karl to not just live, but to wake out of his coma and then to be healed during his months of rehabilitation, you will rejoice with us…cause it was the miracle-wedding-of-our-lifetime…

And if you feel like wishing the birthday-girl a happy day, you are more than welcome to, she’s a party kind of girl…and would really love it, no doubt….
