We Are Family...

Sister Sledge said it best:

"We are family,
Get Up Everybody and Sing..."
That is pretty much what we felt like doing today as we celebrated our first family day - which means that one year ago today we became the family we are now.

One year ago an amazing little bundle was placed in our arms and halfway across the world we became a family. God had planned it from the beginning - He knew from the very start that we would be where were - when we were. And man did we question Him on the journey there - but He is so much bigger, wiser, and loving than us - He never led us down a path we couldn't handle and didn't grow from.

We wouldn't change a thing about the last several years that brought us to where we were today - out in the front yard, setting a camera timer to snap pics of us on our first family day! What a blessing this year has been!
