The 1st time we saw her face

I can't believe that 2 years ago today, we saw the face of our little angel. Here is what I posted on our blog that day-
UPS delivered our baby at 10:15 this morning. Stork Chad was shocked to know he was delivering but he was a great sport! I can't put into words the pure joy of seeing my babies face for the 1st time. It was so much better than I ever imagined. Unbelievable-Amazing-Breathtaking! I am even more in love. In the 2nd picture we rec'd, she is holding a bear and it has the initial "A" on it. How neat is that? She looks so tiny and petite. Her lips are perfect and precious! I know that is the mommy talking but I think she is the most precious, beautiful thing I have ever seen! I don't know how we will endure the wait to go get her

Nothing could have prepared us for the joy of that moment-it was a love so intense that I could not believe I had to wait 2 months to hold my daughter-she was ours and we were thrilled and so thankful to God for orchestrating the entire process. I can't believe how much she has grown in these 2 years. It is as if she has been with us forever. We are forever changed by the beauty and gift of international adoption. I would go back again today if it were possible.
