Another Anniversary

One year ago today we welcomed our newest American citizen into this amazing country. I hope we can instill in her the pride, appreciation and gratitude we have for living in the greatest country on this earth. I have found myself pondering over the last several days what her life would have been like if we hadn't come to get her, if she hadn't been adopted, if...

But then I remind myself how silly it is to wonder "what if". It doesn't matter because "it wasn't". God has blessed us. Lily has been blessed with a home, a forever family and people who love her more than she may ever understand. And I know we have all been blessed even more by her. Welcome home baby girl!

Oh, she is so precious! I am sure one day she will understand the love that her momma and daddy have for her, as it is so tangible, albeit so grand! And, with that love, she will become such a great woman, wife, and momma herself.

Your sweet Lily blesses me so much! :)

Just catching up! I read this a while back but never got around to commenting. Sorry :(

Anyway, congrats on that beautiful little girl of yours! I love that shot....it really shows how playful and happy she is.
