Three Years. Really???

Yes. Really!

Where do the years go?

Avery came to us as a very frightened little girl.
She was almost four when she became our daughter.

It took her a while to give her heart to us.

Hugs and kisses were cautiously given.
Smiles and laughter were sparingly shared.

As I look back over these past three years, I now see the transformation.

I now see how this little girl gave herself to us.

I see how God has worked in her life.

She loves us....with wild abandon.

She is happy.

She is sassy.

She is mischievous.

She is silly...or so silly!

She is our sweet girl-y girl.

She makes us smile and laugh.
She brings us joy EVERY SINGLE DAY!

We are so crazy in love with this child!!!!
*deep sigh*

We are blessed.
