Two Years Ago Today .....

We saw this face for the first time....



She had big 'ol dimples even then!





Today is the 2nd anniversary of our referral call. I can remember it so vividly still. We had waited what at that time was an unusually long time(6 weeks) for our referral and I was really near the end of my patience waiting. I had also just quit my job and that day was the end of my first week off, so I wasn't sure what to do with myself. So, when the phone ran that afternoon and our agency's name was on the caller ID, I nearly jumped out of my skin. When the emails arrived with her pictures, I couldn't open them fast enough!

And it's also my mom's birthday, so an extra special day!
