One year ago today I anxiously sat by the computer, hitting refresh every 5 minute, waiting for that all important email telling me when my daughter would be coming home. One year ago today I got that email. Our adoption process was coming to an end. The emotions I was feeling that day are rushing back to me. I can't even right this post without getting all chocked up. We were PINK, PINK, PINK. What an amazing day. Little did I know what the Lord had in store for us. It's been a journey, an incredible journey and by no means is it over.

For those who are still waiting for your children, the day will come.


LET'S PLAY

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT

OH NO, THE BOAT CAPSIZED

I am so happy I got to be there to help you thru you last leg of your adoption process.. It was a blessing to be able to help you bring Faith home.. She is such a beautiful little girl.. She is getting bigger each time you post pictures of her..

I was also blessed with having a wonderful friendship out of being there in Guatemala with you n your family.. I can't wait to see you all again soon..

Just stumbled onto your blog. Our pink came while I was in Guatemala on April 22, so I know how you feel about the emotions rushing back. I'm saving your blog so I can go back and read your journey! We have 3 boys and one daughter (she's from Guatemala!)
