You were so unsure...tiny and beautiful. We were overwhelmed by the reality of the little girl we'd been hoping and praying for.
Even that first day, you began to unfold before our eyes. I remember saying it was "like the sun coming out on a cloudy day."
From that first day we met you, and even before, we knew it would be so hard to leave you in that place. To go home without you and wait and wait...for months we'd wait.
Now that a year has past and you are home, solidly planted in our family, that day still seems like a dream. But having you home is so very real.
You are happy.
|This is how Ally signs "I love you"|
You are very loved.
What a difference a year can make!
