The first step is to penetrate the clouds of deceit and distortion and learn the truth about the world,
then to organize and act to change it. That's never been impossible and never been easy. ~Noam Chomsky

Beautiful Girl

One year ago tonight you needed a mama.

And one year ago tonight I needed a baby...


  1. She really is such a beautiful girl. Ariam's eyes are huge in that picture. So precious.

  2. And Tariku slept soundly in the crib beside her, rolling his head.

    And one year ago tonight, when she became your daughter, our paths were destined to cross. And I am so thankful that they did. Our kids share a guardian angel -- how many other folks can make that claim!?!

    She looks beautiful and wise in this photo -- just as she is today.

  3. Love that picture! She's so gorgeous!

  4. OMG- those cheeks! They scream "kiss me!"

  5. Whoa! Dejavu all over again!

  6. And now you ALL get to be a family :)


Some of my very dearest friendships have been made through writing this blog and reading blogs written by other adoptive families. Comments help to facilitate and grow relationships and I welcome any written with positive intentions.
