One Year Together

It does not even seem possible that one year ago today we were meeting our daughter for the first time. 
I can hardly believe it myself.  I look at this little stinker, and it is so obvious that she was meant to be ours. 
I look at where she came from, and I see her fierce bravery, her love of adventure, her persistence (seeing a trend ... seems each of the LilyKids exhibits this trait to the extreme) ... her beauty.  
But the Lord said to Samuel, “For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7
Love my feisty girls (and my boys too)!

Every day we learn more about life through our children.  Through Nora we have learned a whole lot more about overcoming circumstances, about patience, about unconditional love.  Nora has blessed us in so many ways.

What an incredible gift.  One year together ...

Wow! A year has passed. I remember well waiting for any picture or update from you and Jason upon meeting Nora.

So thankful to see how God has knit your family together so beautifully!

Love you!
