Happy 1rst Gotcha Anniversary

One year ago today, our little angel Olivia was placed in our arms for the first time. One year later, we are looking at her like life didn't exist without her. It's just crazy how much she has grown in such a short period of time. She has grown physically, emotionally and intellectually into a fun filled laughing, curious, energitic toddler.

The rough times are here too. This week she is suffering from high fever, lots of night coughing and a nasty ear infection. We are just so glad that we are here to nurse you with lots of hugs, snuggles and love. She has spent the whole day sleeping today so lets hope when she wakes she is already to celebrate her special day.

Happy 1rst Gotcha Anniversary Monkey. We love you

Happy Gotcha Day!! Wow, Olivia certainly has grown- what a head of hair she had in her finding ad. Did you order from Brian Stuy? Do you mind me asking what things you ordered? I am considering getting Kimberly's as they weren't making them available when we adopted Hannah in 2002.
