their faces, a year ago today

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY...

It was a pretty normal morning here except that Rusty was still home at about 9am.
I sat down to check email (something that I was doing obsessively at the time) and *IT* came in.
The long awaited email.
The pictures of the kids we had prayed and prayed and prayed for.
The email that we were told that had been sent but we had not received for many long days.

We were ready to not only see them but go get them.

Here is what we saw...
Just four short days after seeing theses pictures we boarded a plane to go bring them home! We did not know ages until two days before we left... what a whirlwind. We could not have left as "prepared" as we did had it not been for a very good friend:)  Many ask our initial thought upon seeing the pictures.  It was a bit of shock.  We "knew" we would get two 4 or 5 year olds since our parameters went that high BUT God had other plans and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt HE knew best!





Here are a few outtakes from this morning...

Now that I am sitting here crying as I look at these two wrapped up in all their spunk and pure cuteness! What a year it has been for you. See you on Friday!

They are both such adorable children, their personalities shine through their pictures. How blessed you all are to have each other. Happy one year ago!!
