Happy Two Year Family Day to our precious girl, Mia Hope Yudan. It has been an incredible journey for you, and for all of us who are blessed to have you touch our lives.
Sept. 3, 2007
I remember immediately reaching out for you ~
as soon as you were carried through the door, I didn't think~
I just reached for you~
Oh, those moments that you will never forget the feelings you had ~ this, of course, was one of those moments. I remember my heart beating, as if it would bust out of my chest ~ then I saw my daughter and, I felt ok and ready to be her mommy ~ I didn't wait, I just reached for her ~ WOW, it was a "take my breathe away" moment :)
Our tiny, petite daughter
who was oh, so brave~

1st Family Day

The shoe does not fit!!!

Sept 3, 2009
2nd Family Day
The shoe definetly doesn't fit :)
Mia tries her baby shoe on her dolly, then she turns to
me and asks "baby Paige shoe?"

Two years ago today we were given a tiny, scared little girl

who needed us as much as we needed her~

Today our little girl is strong-minded,
strong-willed, sweet and joyous!
She has even been described as MAGICAL!
Happy 2nd Family Day sweetheart ~ you have completed us in so many ways ~ we love and adore you!

"Have faith in your dreams and someday

your rainbow will come smiling thru

No matter how your heart is grieving

If you keep on believing

the dream that you wish will come true."

Must have been someone very smart who called her Magical :) because that is the perfect description. We all (and you know it is true) love that little girl with all our hearts. What a beautiful post!!! XOXO Barb
