I’m not normally a fan of novelty shirts...

However, I’ve found 3 recently that I just couldn’t pass up.
Though we waited almost two (at times agonizing!) years for our precious adopted daughter, Reagan was undoubtedly worth the wait. It still amazes me when I think about all the months I longed for a referral, when in fact she wasn’t even born yet. God clearly knew exactly which child was meant for our family, and He brought her to us in ways and times that we could have never imagined.

As a CPA and adoptive mother well acquainted with the federal adoption tax credit, as well as the other tax benefits of children, this one made me laugh. Of course, all the credits we could possibly be eligible for barely make a dent in our expenses, but of course, Reagan was worth the financial cost too!

But this is the best one of all. In case you can’t read the shirt, it says “All-American Sweetie.” Cute enough on its own, but the shirt (and the girl) were “Made in Vietnam!”

Those are so fun! And Reagan just keeps getting more and more beautiful. She looks so happy and settled.
