"Gotcha Day" 2 year anniversary

I can't believe it's been 2yrs since we first met our Lily. She was not a very happy little girl that day, missing her foster mom very much. We are so thankful that she was well cared for and loved so much. I can remember after she had fallen asleep from crying so much that first evening just looking down on the bed and seeing that perfectly shaped little head covered with lot's of black hair and thinking, "wow we have been so blessed"!!! I was in love, and almost in disbelief that she was finally right there in front of me. She has brought us many laughs these past 2yrs and a little stress too, but what 2yr old doesn't. We still feel truly blessed that God has entrusted this precious little one to us and can't imagine life without her. Just some pictures from the last 2 yrs.

Happy Gotcha Day! She's so beautiful! Was she the one crying in the background of Olivia's video. We watched it last night and I was wondering who was upset...Lily or Zoie. Dori was very stoic that day, but made up for it the next 6 months!

Thanks for sharing these wonderful phtoos!

Happy family day to you!! Great photo collage. I remember Maddy pretty much crying herself to sleep over missing her Foster Family too.

Blessings to you!

Hope you had a wonderful day! We finally had the chance to order pizza last night and remember some of those wonderful moments that first day.

Just a few minutes ago I posted a pic to my blog of Olivia wearing the same dress as Lily in the last pic.
