These are a few pictures from our adoption day (not the greatest pic quality...you'll have days like that!). We really enjoyed spending some special time together as a family. For someone that loves being the center of attention, Kaya was pretty bashful at the court hearing. I don't blame her...it's kind of intimidating! We enjoyed dinner out & then a trip to Build-a-Bear where we all put our "hearts" into her special bear. Fun day!!

We are looking forward to this Sunday. We have arranged to have Kaya dedicated in church, and being that it is Orphan Sunday, we felt it was an appropriate day. We are excited to share this time with family & friends that have walked this journey with us. Yay!!!

I had to laugh when I read this post! We went to Build a Bear after Faith's adoption. Our lives run parallel in so many ways! I do believe this friendship is God-ordained:)

Oh my goodness, what a sweet little treasure you have! She is absolutely adorable--hand-picked by the Father JUST for your family. How blessed you are. The miracle of adoption.

Loved seeing all the sweet pics.

CONGRATS!
