There is something about adoption that seals certain dates in your mind forever.
The sort of dates that are so monumental they change your life and another eternally....
...like the day you hold your daughter for the first time.
It was two years ago today we waited our turn to be called up to the nursery, watching the parents before us on the same monumental journey to met their child.
Our daughter's name was called, I felt full of emotion.
The anticipation, the joy of meeting your child.
We walked into the infant room and a nanny at the care center placed our sweet girl into my arms.
For the first time I felt her soft skin and smelled her sweet smell. I looked into her beautiful soulful eyes.
She looked into my eyes with confusion, a bit of anixety not knowing who I was....
not knowing she was meeting her mother, that I was her "forever mother".
At the same time I looked into hers knowing she was indeed my daughter forever.
Two years ago, God's plan came together....and I was right where I was suppose to be.
2 years ago....
In these 2 years my heart has grown and is full of abundance, gratitude
my life is fuller because my sweet girl is in it.
Our family is complete.
Here she is 2 years later...our sweet girl.
