3 little princess girls from 3 different countries






Our beautiful Boo. Born in Guatemala. Oh what a blessing this child is. 6 years of joy.



My little Ethiopian beauty, My baby girl is a muscled wee little thing. A firecracker. With a heart of gold. 3 years old :)



Our beautiful brown babies :) Love them! They are the sweetest sisters and have a bond I dreamed they would. 



Finally our little survivor. Our fighter. Taiya our European beauty with a little something extra ;) this child was at a 5-6 month old level almost 2 years ago at 4 years old when we brought her home. Starving. Head shaved. Couldnt crawl, walk, stand on her own or barely sit without support. LOOK at her now:) thats GOD's love and strength. She is 6 years old now. She is learning to run and jump and talk. She will be starting school too! We love this baby :)


Tell me adoption is not beautiful.


We had a not so nice, article written on our family in a newspaper from Taiyas home country. The reporter said we picked our children based on "colors" That we dress Taiya as a "fancy puppy" and flaunt our children around but dont take them to parties.
What? We didnt chose our children. GOD did. And I have had puppies. This is SO not the same :)
stupid .people.


travel countdown to reunite with our sweet boy in a few weeks!!


Hugs!
xoxo

Adoption is beautiful, even more phenomenal. I hope there are more people like you guys out there. :D When I get older, I hope I could do the same thing. It is sometimes my other inspiration for me to work harder in my freshman year at college next month. *So that I can be richer. LOL
Oh, I do love cookies too. :)
