A Huge Milestone

Today Lilee officially has been home 1 day longer then she was in Guatemala with her foster parents. Lilee came home at 17 1/2 months old. It is soooo hard to believe that she has been with us longer then that long, hard, grueling fight it took to get her here. That was the longest 17 months of my life! The 17 1/2 months that she has been home has truly flown by, it all seems like a dream. The best part is this little princessa only has a life time left of being here with her family! Lilee will be 3 in 4 weeks.

WE LOVE YOU LILEE and are so blessed to have you as our daughter!!!!
