On March 16, 2010 a baby girl was placed in our arms. We got into a Toyota van with this baby girl and drove out the blue gates of the orphanage.
Never again would she sleep in this crib
Never again would she have to lay in this same crib unattended while the nannies cared for other babies in the orphanage.
This baby girl is now an 18 month old walking, running, talking, babbling, laughing, crying, inquisitive, determined toddler who sleeps in this crib, in this room (with more decor on the walls now).
She has grown from this little baby
To this little girl who loves her big sister
And has changed our lives in ways unimaginable.
We love you Naomi and the first 9 months have been amazing!!!
