Today, was our 1st annual Forever Family Day!
We had pancakes with chocolate chips, strawberries and raspberries. We had bacon and syrup and whipped cream! MMmhhhh! So good!
|Getting ready to head off to school - the pancakes made us late! :-)|
I don't think they minded!
She quietly looked at Roberta, and said "ma ma", then turned to me, and in the most beautiful voice I've ever heard... said "stay away from me you big fat YETI!" and started to cry!
Okay, maybe she DIDN'T say EXACTLY that...
But she did win over our hearts that day. Actually, she won over our hearts 5 months before that when we first saw her picture and read her profile. Or to be even more precise, 5 years ago, when she was born, she became the answer to a question which we didn't even know our family was asking.
|Look how tall she has gotten in the last year! We marked her height when we got her referral (Jade 3.5), then when she got home 5 months later (Jade 4). Hopefully the markers can be seen in the photo.|
And now, 1 year being home with us... it is nothing short of a miracle to see her with her siblings, and how she is thriving in every way!
I love you Baby! Happy Family Day!
