Precious Memories.....

It was 11 years ago today that I laid eyes, in person, on my beautiful little love, Jennifer Paola. They brought her into our hotel room in Guatemala City and it was love at first sight! She was a spunky little extrovert. A little, 15 month old bitty girl with a little bowl cut! Precious.

 Oh I love my girlie. She has a heart of gold and a nurturing side that is unbeatable.

Daddy putting her to sleep her very first night in our arms :)

Off to the Embassy....nervous!

Her Baptism....one of the most important days of her life!

Last years gotcha day....my sister made her a cake to celebrate...you REALLY outdid yourself...well, you really outdid ME for sure!


And exactly 1 year ago from yesterday....THIS is what took place....

    Jenny was (and still is) ADORABLE! She was sooo little when you came for her....so sweet.

    And then Stas :) what a bundle of love.

    Adoption is such a beautiful gift.
