One year ago today, our caseworker asked us if we'd like to see the file of a certain little girl.
This was the very first picture we were given. A beautiful baby with a pale, bruised face...love at first sight.
Later the same day, we got new pictures that had been taken just a few days earlier. 2 1/2 years old. Our pretty little rosebud. We committed to adopt her a couple of days later.
One year later, Alayna Grace is home with us. We are so very thankful to have her here.
Our precious girl.
11 months of praying and waiting and now she's really here...already here a month and becoming such a big girl.
Thank you to everyone who spent last year praying and supporting our adoption of Alayna Grace and for loving her along with us.
I've decided to keep blogging to share as Ally continues to settle in and experiences so many new things during her first year home.
