One year ago...

One year ago today, we were woken up at midnight with a phone call. The person on the other end told us that they had a child for us, would it be okay if they sent us some pictures and some information on her. We said of course, and a few minutes later we laid eyes on our daughter for the very first time.





We woke up the boys, and showed them their sister, and then they went back to sleep. And the funny thing is, in the morning Preston had not remembered being woken up, so we had to do it all again!

All we knew about you then was that you were 7 months old, and needed a Mommy and Daddy and brothers who would love you, and give you  forever home.


We got to watch you grow up through pictures....









Until the wonderful day in February when we FINALLY held you in our arms...

A year later and we know a lot more. We know how much you like to eat, and how smart and adventurous you are.  We know you love to laugh, and try to fit in with the older kids. We know you love to swim, and that you love your Mommy and Daddy. We know you like the dog, and climb on the furniture.  You love to fly, and ride the train, and be tickled by your family.





We know that you are a perfect fit, and that we are the most blessed people in the whole world, because we get to call you ours.....
