Happy 3rd Birthday!!

I remember a year ago, we all sang to Josie as she blankly stared at us.

Well, this year she celebrated not only with her brother and sisters, but with all of her grandparents and 10 cousins. She opened presents with all the 'ahhh-oooohs' and sang 'Happy Birthday to me' along with us, blew out her candles on her Dora cake...then took a trip to BuildaBear. It was a great day!!!!

Happy One Year, Josie!!

One year ago today we walked into an office building on the other side of the world and met a very overwhelmed, scared little girl....

so tiny, so quiet

but so brave

looking back, this year has been nothing short of a miracle.

Josie is a smart, loving, very typical almost 3 year old.....
you would think that she has been the one that has been blessed and changed,
but in reality, we know who the lucky ones really are!

Josie, Happy one Year in our family!
We can't imagine our lives without you!
