Our Child :)

Life has been so beautiful lately. I know that it's such a bizarre word to declare for life, but its the only word that comes to mind when I think of life right now. Josh and I have been married for almost 3 weeks and I absolutely adore marriage. It has been a breath of fresh air for my life and has brought a vast amount of healing to my life. It was the official end to ties with either one of my parents and in some way allowed me to believe that I can be free of their bondage imposed on my life from a very young age. Every time I write my name or introduce myself as a Woodlief I get tears in my eyes because I'm finally a Woodlief now! The best thing about marriage is how my relationship with Christ has drastically changed.

On a different note, I would like everyone to meet Ericka Britney Sotelo Acosta. She is our adopted child! Josh and I decided that we wanted to sponsor a child and she is ours! We are so excited! We are really trying to start making a difference in our own lives and the way we live our lives, so we decided to make a childs life better. Andy our friend mentioned Compassion International and now we have a child! We get to send her to school, help her grow physically and spiritually, and overall pray for her. The great and amazing thing about sponsoring a child through Compassion is that we can go on a mission and visit Ericka whenever we want. Josh and I praying desperately about going to see her.

Thanks for reading! Hope everyone is well :)
