My heart turned 12 today!

Today my baby girl, my heart, turned 12 years old.  How can that be?  11 years and 3 months ago; in a little room in an orphanage in Izhevsk, Russia; a chubby little baby was placed in our arms.  It was a day I thought would never happen. 

001She stole our hearts from the first moment… and has never given them back.

Today again is a day I never imagined.  I have a 12 yo!  Samantha, Samie, Sam, our baby girl…. our heart!

We had our family celebration this past Mon.  With school today and cheerleading practice and soccer practice…. well that leaves little time for celebrating.  But know baby girl that we are celebrating everyday that you were placed in our arms!

We made her frost her own birthday cupcakes!  Of course she didn’t mind this at all.  I think an awful lot of that frosting got on her fingers!005 The prospect of contact lenses made her smile!018039 045

Happy Birthday to My Heart!

Blessings!
