1 year from FOREVER

I cannot believe it's already been a year since we adopted our babies. 
I feel like it's a special gift that our adoption date was during National Adoption Month (November).  I hope we and our children always raise awareness how God blessed our family through adoption.  

It's funny.  It took what seemed like forever for them to be officially ours.  We had them for 2 1/2 years before I could call them mine with assurance.  I will never forget his round little toddler face with mischievous grin.  Or her dark, serious eyes and how tiny she was.  

or how proud he was with any job we gave him
or how happy she was with our attention and praises focused on her
he was just a little boy who wanted to be loved
she was just a baby that wanted someone to take care of her....

You couldn't tie me up and keep me away from these two after the first day I met them.
I was in love.
And no matter how many people tried to protect me and convince me, I knew the truth.
They were mine. 

Happy ADOPTION day, Leland and Evy.

I'm so grateful to the Lord for you both and how He brought you into our family.
