Its been a year.
One year since we went to court and became Maddie's Mom and Dad.
We had only known our daughter-to-be for forty minutes - we weren't even able to see her before court.
We adopted our little girl based on a 40 minute visit...and faith.
I've been continuing to post about our adoption adventure over at Sage Brush Diaries for the last several weeks...but I'd really enjoy it if you would go over and check out today's post. Actually there are four posts from today - start with 'Invasion of Odessa'...it's worth it, I promise. I re-read it this morning and couldn't believe how insane this day was 366 days ago.
Crazy, I tell you.
While you're enjoying the post and the pictures, we'll be enjoying the day with Maddie. While its not technically her 'Gotcha Day' we're going to celebrate it anyway. I'm thinking a trip to B@skin Robbins is in order. Maybe some Cookies & Creme ice cream...or some Very Berry Strawberry.
Yea. I know its cold...but some things just call for a celebration with some ice creamy goodness.
And this is definitely one of them.
