One Year Ago...

Etched on my heart. A moment. A memory. A day I will never forget.

Ella, Ben, and I were up north visiting my family. It was an emotional stay and an even more emotional day. June 5 is the anniversary of my Grandfather's death. And it was the first anniversary. Gramps was much more than a grandpa to me...and I miss him dearly.

But God had something in store for me that day. A special surprise. Something that would forever change my life. Something that would forever change my world.

A referral with the picture of the Cutest. Little. Baby. In. The. World.

I knew immediately upon opening her file and reading about her that I was looking into the eyes of my daughter. Those increadibly beautiful, big, brown eyes.
Where God had taken away, He also gave.
An amazing little girl who Jason and I have been blessed beyond measure to be able to parent. Lily Jeeah is an amazing addition to our family and I can not imagine my life without her.
There is so much more to this story...but that will be a story that Lily will be the first to hear. One that I will protect in my heart special just for her.
I love you, Lily Jeeah. Love. You.
