Three years ago today we met a serious, terrified, beautiful little girl. She became ours that day…

It took her forever to smile, and it took her even longer to relax and let us in a little bit.

She was the smallest two and a half year old I had ever seen…

But after her heart was fixed she caught up fast. And a year later, she was on US size charts…

It was a year before we felt like she had bonded with us…

And two years later, we were content with our little family…

We had SO much fun with our little girl, that we decided to add on!

Now, three years later, I am so proud of my little girl…

Our family has changed significantly this year… we didn’t just add a little brother, we added an almost three year old little brother. I don’t think I would have been able to handle that at her age! 

My little M is amazing, and I love her to pieces.
Happy family day, little M!

    Happy Family Day, happy little family! Can you even begin to believe the joy that has been added to your lives in the last 3 years?! We are so close to 3 years as a family also and we just look back with such amazement and gratitude. Bet Little M won't be modelling in that little dress that she was wearing the day you met her this year, hey?!! Enjoy your day! : )
