See my daughters drawings!




My daughter Ashley is 16 years old now! She is a child that was given to us through adoption. We adopted Ashley after she had already been in 32 homes (since she was 5). I wanted to post some photos of her...but, she had a fit. She really wanted her pictures posted. This morning she found one of the drawings while doing her weekend cleaning and said, "Mom, you promised to post these and you haven't! Why not? Don't you think they are good enough?" Okay...so now guilt has set in quickly! I have to go to work now, but felt that it was a "must do" to put these on for all to see:) Ashley reads at a first grade level. But you would never know she struggles in school by her drawings. Some children write words to tell a story. My daughter can tell a story and more through her art:) Don't you think she is truly gifted? As difficult has she can be sometimes (like most 16 year old girls)...I am very blessed to have her:) This post is just for you Ashley!!!! Thanks for all the pictures! I will always treasure them:)

Ashley,
Your drawings are wonderful. And someday when your mom comes to see me, you can come along, and you will see the picture you sent me of the angel, framed and on the wall in my family room.
You are a talented girl, just like your beautiful mom.
Keep drawing...someday we'll meet and you can show me your "portfolio".
XOXOXO
