She's mine.

As I sat holding her, and staring she just seemed so familiar.  Her little face feels like it's always been in my heart.  I have known her for so long, yet I just met her.  Adoption is amazing like that.  I believe that I could have picked her out without anyone telling me who she was.
Our adoptions have both been very different.  With Abigail I got to know her form before she was born.  I saw her through ultrasound.  I felt her kick by putting my hand on her tummy mommy's belly.  The moment she was born I was in love with her. 
Shilo was much different.  We didn't even know how much she as going to weigh when we met her.  We had never seen her tummy mommy, and therefore had no idea even what color her skin would be.  It took us a little longer to fall in love the way we did with Abigail.  But from the first moment I saw her she felt familiar, like someone I had always known.
I have heard people say that they don't know if they could love a child that wasn't theirs.  The thing is, as soon as we met our daughters there was something there.  Some heart connection that was ordained by God when he chose these sweet girls to be ours. 

So thankful that we have been chosen to be two sweet little girl's parents,
