  • Jane in Canada - Ashley, I am so incredibly happy for your family. Little One is beautiful and she is such a lucky girl to be part of your amazing family! Congratulations!

  • Nicole - This is one great family shot!

  • Jessica - Ashley Ann! Your blog has had me giggling, brought me to tears and has inspired me – sometimes all in the same post! Over the past couple of weeks I have found myself drawn to my computer screen reading posts that emanate what it means to be a woman after God’s heart. Your story is truly an inspiration! I do have a question regarding your adoption. I know that Little One was not a newborn when you finally had her in your arms. Did you have the opportunity to choose her name? Was she called by a different name for the period of time that she was in China? Thank you for being so raw and genuine!
