Happy Gotcha Day!!

2 years ago today Janie was placed in my arms. I cannot even begin to find the words to describe that moment. After so many years of waiting, heartache, wonder, praying, and even some doubting.....God handed me my child.

I am still in awe of how blessed I am. Janie is an amazing little girl. She is an absolute perfect gift from God. Isn't it wonderful how He knows EXACTLY what He is doing!

There simply are no words. Just L.O.V.E beyond anything else I have ever imagined. And now that she is a big sister, I am double-blessed!!

Thank you Deana Pan (and your loving staff), thank you AGCI, and mostly thank you Lord for my daughter! I pray that her birth mother also feels the peace and comfort knowing that her sweet baby girl is adored each day!

Referral photos of Janie. These were the first 2 pictures I saw of my sweet baby.

Janie today! You've come a long way baby!
