One Year Ago Today. . .



One year ago today, we received and accepted, the referral of our fourth child and second daughter, Baby L. Here is the first photo we saw of her. . .




And here she is a year later. . .




We are celebrating today with a homemade cake and Jollof Rice - my first attempt at some good Ghanaian cooking. Updated to add - I decided instead to use this recipe for Jollof - a little simpler.

Blessed Feast of St. Leo to you!

Congradulations on having such a beautiful little bundle of joy! We too are adoptive parents. We have 3 biological sons, and then adopted a daughter and another son through foster care. The all have been blessings. - Our daughter is mixed race and our son is African American. It's been a wonderful adventure!!
