This year has gone by so very fast. So so so fast. Is it possible that Callie is already 1? It feels like we've only had her a few months, yet that day that we got her seems so long ago. It all happened so quickly -- a phone call from the adoption agency, a flight to Michigan, and a new baby in my arms. My heart melted when I saw her little hands and face. I fell immediately in love. And that love, over the past year, has grown into a deep bond and connection that can never be split. I can't imagine my life without her. I am so grateful for her birth mother for making the difficult decision. She is an admirable young woman and we constantly pray for her. Callie has been such a blessing in our lives. What a ray of light she is in our home. She is full of love and curiosity. She is beautiful and kind. Already she likes holding her baby, patting her on the back, and feeding her her bottle. Her giggle is contagious and her her smile is just incredible. She mimics everything we do. Oh, what a sweetheart. Happy Birthday Callie. We love you, love you, love you!
(For some reason I can't get the pictures to get in the order I want...so...they are all out of order. Oh well.)
