A walk down memory lane...

It's snowing outside and becoming bitterly cold. So, I am going to take a walk down memory lane...and, you all can come with me.

Brayden during our first visit trip. NOTHING will every compare to the feelings I felt the first time I laid eyes on him and got to hold him for the first time. I smiled from that moment and didn't stop throughout the entire trip...well, until I had to leave anyway.

Visit trip #2...bittersweet because I got to see and hold my son again, but we just didn't know how much longer it was going to be for him to come home. He was such an amazing baby.

Visit trip #3 that turned into the pick up trip. I didn't know until arriving that the time had come to bring my baby boy home...that smile was back on my face!!!

Our first trip to meet Layna! What a beautiful baby. I fell in love instantly and probably held her throughout the entire trip. She had a little harder time adjusting to being with us than Brayden did. She just needed more time to build her trust and learn to love us.

The best Christmas present ever...Layna is coming home! We arrived home with her 5 days before Christmas and it was such a relief given the uncertainty of Guatemalan adoptions at that time. We are so blessed to have her home. She fits right in.

Thanks for going down memory lane with me...makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

It's so hard to believe it's been two years since your family became the perfect circle. It's beautiful through and through. Merry Christmas!
