Dream Come True

Not flesh of my flesh
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart,
But in it.

The most memorable so far.. It marks the month we left for China to meet our baby girl... I can not imagine my life with out her...

Norah has grown and changed allot in a year..

She has become more independent.

She is still a bit behind in her vocabulary but she knows lots of words, and defiantly understands way more then she can speak!!

She has grown ad least 6 inches 11 pounds, 3 shoe sizes, 2 diaper sizes! I just wonder when she will slow down for me.. It really goes to fast!

Norah's second Birthday

I can hardly believe my little girl is 2... she is turning into little ms independent. She is so full of character, and easy to laugh. She is a girly girl , who loves her dresses and baby dolls and wearing costume jewelery. She had a great Birthday that we were able to celebrate with her Foster sister and our travel partner. Both of them have the same Birthday, it was a very special day.


Well March started off very sad for us with the loss of our beautiful boy dog Buddy.. It was very sudden and unexpected.. One day things are fine and the next he did not seem right and took him to the vet.. landed up he had cancer and his liver and perforated and he was bleeding internally.. We had to make the decision to put him down that morning.. We were devastated to say the least... On a good note, Norah is falling into her new routine with hanging with Nana and Papa for a few hours a day while I am at work part time. The girl just makes her self at home with raiding and literaly sitting in the fridge. Going through the pantry, playing with Nana shoes and jewelry.. It is so nice knowing my daughter is loved and comfortable while I work.

Beauty shot

I adore this picture of my daughter!! I think she is absolutly beautiful here. It has been a word that people use alot to describe her. Even our social worker said she has seen alot of little ones come from China, but Norah is very unique as she is very beautiful... she compared her looks to Sophia Loren.. with having somethign about her that makes her beautiful.... this might sound like bragging... and it might be. but I can appreciate my gems beauty as well ..
