 i heart faces- best face of 2010 photo contest
Photo #187!!!  Thank you!!!


I don't know about you, but choosing the best face of 2010 is truly a challenge!  
Link to Photography Contests & Photo Tutorials - I Heart Faces


But here goes....(drum roll) it is our sweet girl!  Not a big surprise, as this face had more face time with my camera than any other in the past year!  2010 was a big year for our family and for this sweet face, and here is why.


-saw that sweet face for the first time in her referral photo (she was 10 weeks old)
- studied her sweet face in the social report from the care center
-kissed her sweet face for the first time on Feb 26th, 2010
- wiped tears away on this sweet face and later saw her first smile for us at the care center
    in Ethiopia
- and over time saw this sweet face go from uncertainty to the smile below...connected, loved, secure

And as I type this, that sweet face is sitting next to me singing her rendition of 
"Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, please shine down on me".....   
But I think her sweet face is shining on all of us right now.
