All I WANTED For Christmas


THIS IS THE VERY FIRST PHOTO I OPENED OF OUR SWEET
BABY GIRL :) THOSE EYES....OH YOU HAD ME WITH THOSE EYES.


LOOK AT THIS LITTLE TINY FOOT ;)

LOOKING AT THIS HAPPY LITTLE BABY,
I KNEW HOW BLESSED WE WERE.




HAPPY REFERRAL DAY MY SWEET BABY GIRL :)!!!!
ON December 4, 2008 I had just laid down to take a little nap, when my phone rang.....I looked at the number slowly. I answered it knowing our whole world was about to change :) It was Christy , and she told me she had awesome news for me !!! We were only #4 on the girls list, so it was a wonderful surprise. She explained all about baby girl and my mind was a blur, I was just so happy and couldn't wait to open the pictures !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love at first site :)
(( For those of you who believe in signs like I do, we were #4 on the girls list, we received our referral at 4 pm , baby girl was our 4th child, and it was Dec 4th !!!! ))
Hiwot (Hewitt) was only 11 weeks old ,teeny and perfect :)
She came home in April at 17 #s and today is a perfect and still teeny at 20#s & 15 months old.
We love you more then life our beautiful Ethiopian princess !
We thank God for you each day, and thank God for your birth mothers brave,selfless choice :)
Adoption is truly Gods work. It is just so amazing...
Happy Friday :) :)

Truly a blessing to our whole family! So precious she is...gosh I can't believe it was a year ago. I love you Tatianna!! I still remember the phone call to tell you about getting out of pgn with boo! I was like "is this good news? Because if it's not, you can't talk to Maria" :) Then had to yell it at you what she was saying because you were just staring quietly. :) Love you!!
