3 Years Ago Today........


I was united with my daughter forever, and never had to leave her again! This was my 6th trip over to Guatemala . 3 years ago today Sara Ava and I went to the US Embassy to finalize her adoption. The next day we got her Visa to come home , then on the 16th Sara Ava came home to us forever.








Sara Ava in her outfit that she wore to her apt. She was 2 yrs and 9 mo. old.







My mom came with me on this trip to help me with Lilee while we were at the Embassy.



Two Sisters enjoying each other even at an early age. Lilee was 5 months old.

Happy Forever Family Day!! I didn't realize we had just missed each other (or if I did, I've forgotten). We were at the Embassy on Sept. 11th three years ago for Kamryn and Kloey. We flew home on the 13th.

What a wonderful time we had in
Guatemala! And a wonderful day when
we brought Sara Ava home. I'm so
glad I was blessed to be a part of
that. And glad to meet Lilee for the 1st time.
Congratulations Sara Ava on your Gotcha Day.
Congratulations Lilee on your Gotcha Day coming up. I'm glad you share that day with my birthday.
When Pawpaw and I saw you get off of that plane, it was my best birthday ever.
Love ya both bunches, xoxoxoxoxox
