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!!!
