A Year Ago...

Can't believe a year ago today I was writing about Sveta turning four, not knowing when we would ever meet her. (Little did I know we would get our invitation to travel just a few days later!!)

So EXCITED that tomorrow we get to celebrate her 5th birthday with her in our arms! 

May 28, 2011...

Guess Who's...

Turning FOUR sometime soon???
We can't wait to meet you Little One...
To make the biggest birthday cake ever.
Just for YOU!
Preparations for welcoming you into your family are already taking place...
Little matching outfits...
I had to buy them...the purple is for Little probably won't even fit..but I went a little wonky in Target one day. Paige was thrilled and keeps wanting to get more matching outfits. We have to wait though until we know better what Little One's size is.

Other news...literally...the news contacted us to do a "Focus on Faith" segment. We pray this will help bring awareness to adoption and most importantly bring glory to the Lord. He is so good, even when heartache, destruction and things that just don't make sense rain down.

Feeling peace today, knowing I don't have to have all the answers, don't have to know the master plan, don't have to be in the driver's seat.
He's got it.
And our Father is FOR us.

"May the Lord bless you and keep you: May the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace."

Happy Birthday Little One.
Our thoughts, prayers and love are already surrounding your sweet little soul.
Fast forward a year...Paige and Sveta wearing the same skirts I wrote about.

Happy little girls. Sveta is doing amazing and we can't imagine our lives without her.

Adoption has changed our lives.

Tomorrow, we get to celebrate this little girl's blessed birthday. Praise God.
