  1. Your "firstborn" came into your life at a 150 lbs.(ouch) And making noise right from the start. You have been a blessing in our lives to be parents to my son Cameron. You took him into your home his senior year of High School so that he could receive the blessings he was waiting for. He loves you both more than you will ever know and so do I. Your unconditional love and support and the guidance that you showed to him is so amazing. with Love always Shauna West

Today, June 29, is the year mark from the day I became a mom.

My entire life has been a series of tender mercies. I am still convinced that I was given my scholarship to Westminster simply because Heavenly Father knew that as a teenager, my tendency was to give up if things were too hard, and He knew I needed to be a teacher.

When I moved to Nephi, I was given a great job simply because the Lord knew that I needed to be HOME in order to sort out the mess I was making of my life. It worked.

Shortly after falling in love with Blaine, I became his Mrs. without hesitation. Our relationship is now and always has been EASY. We knew that we could build a happy life, that we could build a beautiful forever and so we did. We are.
We found an incredible home with room to grow. Purchased at auction, we marveled at the home and tried to think of how we could possibly fill five bedrooms. A tender mercy.

In February of last year, my sister called and talked to me about a possible adoption. There w…
