Thinking Back

We are coming up on the very day, 4 years ago, now that God gave us Chloe. That is a fun day for our family - we remember lots of things with her. I remember most how incredibly HARD that day was - we wanted to love all over her - we had been waiting for her for over a year - she, on the other hand, had no idea she needed another home other than the one she had known for her short 8 months of life. I can not imagine how traumatic that day was for her - hey, if you were handed to me with TORNADO hair (thanks, Chloe) you'd be scared too!! :) But it was also a WONDERFUL day - a day we wouldn't trade for any other! We have been blessed. I found this article online though and think it's a wonderful way to portray what might have been going through her mind - in a way that makes sense to me!

Oh my - what a sweet face. Isn't it surreal to remember that day?

I remember the weeks before you got Chloe. You were so anxious to have her in your arms.. I also remember when you brought her into the Hair Clinic for the first time. How special that day was. She was finally here!

So happy for you.

Look at that beautiful baby! She's grown into a beautiful little girl. We had a similar "first day" but, 7 months later, you'd never know. God faithfully melded us together as a family. I love that 4everfamily website -- lots of good stuff there!

Wow! That certainly gives their experience a new perspective. These girlies of ours are remarkable and wonderful blessings. Here's to more blessings! ;-)

It was a beautiful day for all of us.....I can hardly believe that April 7th, 2009 will be a day of double happiness for Sophia and Andrew.... ;)

Oh sweet, sweet memories...words could just never express properly!
love you and thinking of you especially at this precious time!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
