One year ago today, we said yes.

We were told by the social worker that these referral pictures
didn't capture this little girl's personality at all.

For us, what they did capture was simple.
A child with no family. No home.
A precious soul.

And we fell in love.

So, over dinner, we discussed. Prayed.
[Like we would have said no....]

And we said yes.

What a difference a year makes.

Happy referralversary, precious Abby girl!
You have brought life and light into our home,
and our hearts are overflowing with love for you.
We are the lucky ones.

We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19

(To celebrate: Today, we'll skype with two of Abby's friends from the House of Hope! And tomorrow, I'll post about 6 months home.)
