One year ago today....

Two little orphans from Bogota Colombia became US citizens, and introduced to the rest of their new forever family! Here is a photo of our second night home, all 4 little ones had gotten a bath together for the first time.
To watch the video REMEMBER to go to the bottom of the right hand side of the blog and turn OFF the music.....
The video, its of our dessert time the second night home...Its so funny to hear Lily talking then and to hear her today.... What a difference a FAMILY makes! When we come home Lily was just shy of 4yrs old and Gabby had just turned 5 yrs old, the day we received them.

WE love you Gabby and Lily!

6 nice people had this to say:

I usually read your blog in my reader but I clicked over to your actual site today to see the video of your girls. I'm glad I did, because otherwise I wouldn't have seen the picture you have in your sidebar. The one that says "God made my child in His image too." I just LOVE that. It's so true.

peace and blessings to you all,

that's SO weird to see!!!!
like, i almost can't remember it.
when you're around them everyday it's so hard to see them changing. once you're gone, you can really see how much they've grown and become apart of our family!
