So, you know where we were one year ago today. Praise the LORD! What a difference has been made in our lives the past year. One year ago, Ellie knew NO English. Now, she won't stop talking. ;) One year ago, we were a family of 5, and now we're a family of 7. One year ago, Josie-Tatum didn't know how to give like she gives so much today. God has been so good. I hope you enjoy the before and after photos.
Our First Family Photo---well 3 of us were in the USA.
So, with football practice, college classes, Stan's work, school, and church this evening, we didn't quite celebrate the way I would have liked. JT, E, and I baked cookies this afternoon, though. Then, finally we were all together at 8:30 this evening to sit down together, reminisce, and eat cookies.
Would any Gotcha Day be complete with a little video from that special day? Ellie was thoroughly enjoying herself...watching herself...laughing at herself....as she and JT laughed at each other on Adoption Day.
How hard can it be to get five children to look at the camera, smile, and be serious at the same time?
Good-night sweet baby! Thank you for one blessed year.
