Forever family...2 years later

BLOG forever family collage

March 14, 2011 a beautiful little girl with big brown eyes was placed in our arms and we became forever family...forever changed.

The images above capture a glimpse of that day and a hint of what was yet to come.

...the moment I held our sweet girl...so scared and afraid clinging tight to her apple and partially unwrapped lollipop.

...crying on Michael's shoulder as he tried to comfort her

...our first night together before bedtime 

...holding her and seeing the glimpse of a smile 

BLOG big eyes on bed close up
  Her eyes have always captivated me...at times they are intense and full of wonder 
BLOG big eyes
at other times shy, pensive and quiet
BLOG looking down
but the eyes that define her most are those full of pure joy, delight and love
BLOG sweet smile
She has a contagious laugh and radiant smile that brings us so much joy!
Lily is a survivor in every sense of the word. 
BLOG smile looking off
Her resiliency and courage are my inspiration for each new day and we are so grateful for God's healing in her life.  

What a joy it is to be your mom.

Forever and always you will be our child...
forever and always we will be your family.

"Consider the lilies of the of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
Matthew 6:28
