One Year Ago Today We Met Hiwot...

"A little child enters your life and fills a special place in your heart. A place you never even knew was empty!"

One year ago today, we met "Hiwot"...she was so tiny. She was so quiet. She was so cute! It was one of my favorite days EVER. We had so much fun spending the day at her orphanage and meeting the wonderful people that cared for her. Again, it is strange to say, but I wish we could be there right now and experience the entire day again...There is nothing like meeting your three year old for the first time. I would love to see all of the beautiful children, nannies, and staff members again.
