One Year Ago.....

One year ago, minus a week, we boarded a plane and flew halfway around the world

We met and fell in love with a little girl

A little girl without a momma and a daddy, brothers and sisters

Without a family

A girl who loves to be tickled

Who smiles a lot

And reeaally craves human contact and affection.

A complete sweetheart

A few days later, we left that girl, very sad but hopeful

- we thought we would be back by Christmas 

Well........ that didn't happen!

But, today, October 16, 2011 is the day!

Her clothes are packed, the paperwork is in order, her room is ready

Aren't these paintings sweet? Thanks to the very talented Amy Leyden!!

And we are busting with excitement!!!

And I've got to get busy

It's almost time for take-off

Victoria, here we come!!!
