Three Years have Flown By

I love this photo of the girls with Mya because it kind of sums up Mya's initial response to her new family. I'm so glad things have changed!
Good Morning!!
Three years ago today, we welcomed this beautiful girl in to our family. Time flies so quickly!!
When I first met Mya, I had a gazillion emotions--joy, awe, amazement, fear.
I was not fully prepared for how she would change our lives. It took me a bit to get used to having a little one in our lives again. As Keith says, they are high maintenance!
Mya is a bright, smart, pretty, charming, demanding, drama-queen and we love her to peices!!
Thank God for the miracle of adoption!!
If someone were to ask me what I have learned, it would be that God has given humans a great capacity to love! It is true that WE are the blessed ones!

Yes we are the ones who are blessed! We share in your joy and are thankful to be a part of this "adoption family"! I was just going through our reunion pics last night and smiled at Mya and Anna having bubble fun poolside!
