    We have just become grandparents to two beautiful little children, with another little one to join soon. Our son and daughter-in-law have just adopted these adorable children after many years of a very stressful and painful process of trying to have them naturally, without any success.
    The adoption route was also very stressful, but our prayers were answered and now we are truly blessed with a complete family.
    These little ones (all under three years of age) have brought such joy to our lives, we love them so much, they have bonded very quickly with their new mammy and daddy, and their two sets of grandparents, we couldn't imagine being without them now, looking forward to the little baby girl (8 months) coming home to us very soon.
    We thank God every day for his beautiful gifts, he is truly good.

    Congratulations, Grandma. You certainly have been blessed.

    Now get busy and make these lucky children their own quilts.
    If they're old enough to pick colors, that's nice. Or you could
    show them some colors and ask them to pick one they like.
    Put their (new) names on each quilt, and keep telling them
    how lucky YOU are to have such lovely grandchildren.

    I've heard horror stories of grandparents who refuse to admit
    such adopted kids are "real" ones. Sad, they don't know or even
    care that they are missing the love of an innocent child.

    I would like to say thank you for all your lovely replies
    it is so nice to have your kind words, we are just so overwhelmed with our new grandchildren, we want the world to know about them, at times we feared it would never happen and now we have three, how wonderful is that!!
    Thank the Lord for his loving kindness.

    Congratulations God is great and filled your family's needs threefold. They will bring much joy. My sister is 16 years younger then I am. She was adopted at 2 days old. I know I would never be closer if she were my natural sister. I love her dearly.
