Four Years Ago...

I am slightly behind in getting this posted, but I didn't want to forget... I can never forget...

On April 4, 2006, a beautiful baby girl was placed in my arms. She was everything that I had dreamed and more. You see, I fell in love with her long before I ever met her. God spoke quite distinctly to my heart. I knew just from reading the words "a sixteen month old little girl" that she was our daughter, the little girl that I had pictured so many times in my mind. During our "long" wait, we were blessed with many pictures of this beautiful little one. With each picture, I would try to guess what she was feeling, thinking,and imagining. I longed to hold her and not miss one more minute of her life. I had already missed all of her "firsts", and I could hardly keep a reign on my emotions.
The minute she was placed in my arms, my heart seered to hers, and she was forever our daughter. Today,you could never guess that the she was the same scared little girl that she was on that day. She is filled with joy, and she "Loves" bigger than most people ever could love in their lifetime. She is our Mia! God certainly blessed us, and our lives have been Forever Changed!!
We love you Our Precious Baby Girl!!

What a beautiful post!

I don't know if I ever told you this or not but when we were waiting on a referral, I found your photo website (probably though Dillon chat group)and I thought, what a blessed little girl to be in a family that was so full of love and that loves her so much...I could see that in the photos. Who would have known that years later we would be friends.

We love you sweet Mia, Happy 4th Forever Family Day!

We love you all!!!
