Forever Family Day... Our One Year Anniversary...

One year ago today, February 25, 2007, we received our daughter, Elizabeth. Words cannot even begin to describe how very much we love this little sweetheart. We simply cannot imagine our lives without her.

This is one of the first photos of Elizabeth on that wonderful day.



And here she is one year later. Full of laughter. Full of love.



God has truly spoiled us by allowing us to be her parents. We are so blessed!!!!

yay! Happy One Year Anniversary! Elizabeth looks sooo young!

I'm so happy for your family to have Elizabeth in your lives, and for Elizabeth to have you all in hers!

Thanks for spoiling us all by bringing her home, via God, almost one year ago.

Isn't it amazing? A little girl that was born in a country that refuses to acknowledge God, now in the home of a family that serves HIM. :)

Oh, wonderous congratulations! Isn't it amazing how fast these precious little ones get under our skin and become OURS?

Blessings in Abundance!

Mrs. Pear said...

Can it really be a year already? Then again, it seems like it should be so much longer because she just belongs with you, so she must have always been with you!

Blessings on such a special day!

Miss Elizabeth is a precious gift! It brings tears to my eyes to celebrate her 1 year with you, her family.

And at the same time, I am sad for the mommy in China that had to leave her in a safe place so that she might be found.

My heart is with the people of China who suffer things that we would never dream of. May God bless these who lay down their lives for these children, for their brothers and sisters, and for a scrap of the Bible (that we Americans take for granted).

Congratulations! Children are truly a blessing from God. You can never know the full extent of what love is until you have a child to love.

She is beautiful - and I know you are just in love with her sweet baby self. Our first forever family day is next month (our daughter is from Guatemala) - we are having a cake and family over to celebrate.
