Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

Joyful Noise

I heard the raspy voice almost a year ago. Every now and then in the days after meeting our daughter, Ivy would speak in Chinese. As the days passed, she spoke more and more. I would put in her Chinese children songs for her to listen to. I loved to hear her voice. Fast forward 11 1/2 months. Ivy talks freely, sings freely. She loves to sing songs. I hear her in the shower. She tries singing to the music she plays on the piano. She cannot carry a tune. I'm not exaggerating a bit. She is all over the place. She would make a choir director cringe.



Tonight, she was singing in this echo microphone, trying to teach Eva a new song. Eva would pay no attention to Ivy's lessons. Finally, Ivy gave up and moved on to something new. Of course, I would never tell Ivy she cannot sing. As much as she hurts my ears, I love to hear her sing praises to her Savior.

3 kind words:

Adrian Roberta

Mabie she's just singing in the Spirit!?!

lol,
Roberta

Eva

Oh, Ivy is just like me!!!!

When I met Patrick and discovered our mutual "inclinations", I cringed at the thought of our future children's ability to please the listening ears about. Thankfully, we're adopting all our kiddos; it gives them a fighting chance! LOL.

You go, Ivy! Rock it out!

Jesus loves her sweet (if out of tune) voice!

Our Yana couldn't sing at all when we adopted her, but sings fine now. I wondered if she just hadn't heard much music.
