Metcha Day!

I cannot even begin to gather words to reflect upon our morning. Today we met our third daughter. She is absolutely perfect, precious, beautiful and without a doubt meant to be ours from the beginning of time!

I will write more later when I can collect my thoughts, but for now, what you all want to see....Pictures!!!











 I started singing "You are my sunshine" to her and within minutes she was asleep. Her first time sleeping in her mama's (and daddy's) arms! That was a beautiful feeling that brought me to tears. Tears of gratefulness and thankfulness and amazement!

  3. Oh my! She is just beautiful. She has your eyes :) I love all the pictures. Falling asleep in your arms, the smile on her face, the look of love in her eyes. She looks like she is in a great orphanage and looks so healthy! Im sure that alone makes it easier on you... she looks loved. The 3rd picture down reminds me of Zoya and her adoption. Maybe a similar picture? I am so happy for you.. cant wait for an update

    I've been following your blog since you first brought home Mila and this is the first time I have commented. All the best to you and your new beautiful daughter. Can't wait to see her home with her two sisters! I wish you and your family all the happiness in the world.

    Best wishes from Australia.

    Michelle.

  10. Isn't she precious. What a relief to be able to meet her and not be so shocked by her condition as you were with Mila. She looks healthy and well fed from what I can see! That's such a blessing and must be a comfort to your mama and papa hearts.

    I can't wait to officially "meet" your little treasure and learn her name!! So excited. I can't believe I've been following along for over a year that you have been sharing your heart with us. Thank you and congratulations again! She's not quite "curlie" anymore is she save for a few of those whisps in the back LOL :-)

  24. This post takes my breath away---I am soooo HAPPY for you and your sweet newest angel girl! And is it my imagination or does she look healthier and more animated than your other precious ones did? LOVE the photos--esp. the ones of her sleeping for the first time in yours (and her daddy's!) arms! You can just see the trust and love--and tears of joy threatening to spill over! ;) Zoya and Mila will LOVE her!!

  33. I echo the person who said she looks like a porcelain doll!!
    I was tearing up looking at the pictures, but lost it when I saw your "it matters to this one" necklace. I have goosebumps! What a perfect necklace!!!

    PS. In other weird news, I had a dream the other night that I was babysitting Mila!
