We're in LOVE.....

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away"~

Here's our sweet precious girl....





We are so in love with her already. I love those LIPS!!! And it looks like there's a bit of curl in her hair...is it possible?

The events of yesterday will forever be ingrained in my mind and in my heart. Who knew that a simple phone call from a woman, who, for all she knew, was just calling yet another family to give them word of their baby half way across this world, would change 2 peoples' lives forever. In that one moment, I had no words, and my heart had never felt so full. (And crocodile tears is a definite understatement!!) This is the exact feeling I've been dreaming of for the past 7 years and finally, finally, she's here and this mommy couldn't be any more proud. I pray she's happy, safe and loved until we can finally meet and then, life as we all know it, will never be the same.

YEAH!!! Is all I can think of! This is the luckiest girl in the world and I am sure you will feel the same. I know the journey was tough but there was a reason for it as you were chosen to have her.

Life is really made up of moments - enjoy!

Wow! What a little sweety! She's gorgeous.

Can't wait to see her in person -- the countdown to travel now begins. Hopefully this wait won't be as excruciating.
