Referraliversary #2

2 years ago today, we saw Mihret's sweet lil face for the very first time.
We already loved her way before we saw this precious picture of her... 
...She captured our hearts then, and still does.... everyday.


Our lives were changed FOREVER May 2nd, 2011 - and we cannot imagine our crazy lives without her.  We thank God for her sweet little soul.  She is such a blessing.  She has taught all of us more about compassion, selflessness, patience, kindness...
She reminds us everyday by her sweet little smile that there are millions of orphans still waiting for a family to love them like ours... we pray.

Today, she looks at her picture from two years ago and says, 
'That's ME! ...what happened to my hair?' :)
So, we talk about Africa, Ethiopia, where she lived... 
and how God chose her especially for our family.
We are SO grateful for her little life!
Happy Referraliversary Mihret! YOU ROCK our crazy WORLD!
XOXOX
