That is so beautiful. Since I'm a huge breastfeeding advocate, but have had no experience with adoptive mom's providing milk or breastfeeding their babies - I am just wondering - are you nursing Finn at the breast? If so, how is it going? If you are just pumping are you able to make enough? Sorry for the questions - I think it's fascinating though and a wonderful thing that you are doing for your new babe! Congrats again to your wonderful family!

It's so wonderful so see a picture of Mommy, Daddy and their beautiful daughter. Just as I saw this post, this song came on:

Her father says she has to have a name
Not the same as her mom’s, but a name just the same

A little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.

We’ll show her the dress that she’ll wear
With the gold flowing hair that nature provided
A little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.

A little ray of sunshine -
I want to know if you think she looks good in the pink,
That grandma has bought her … our own little daughter.

She can make you feel good,
She can make you feel that it’s all worthwhile,
Only by her smile, only by her smile …

Have you noticed she’s just like her father,
And I think that I’d rather
Her hair was much darker,
A little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.

She can make you feel good,
She can make you feel that it’s all worthwhile,
Only by her smile, only by her smile, only by her smile …
Talkin’ ’bout my little ray of sunshine,
My little ray of sunshine,
Little ray of sunshine
