So May 7th 2009 was a special day for my wife and me. That's the day we went to pick up our first daughter. She was two months old when this was taken. Of course the official adoption didn't happen until the following Oct.
It's hard to believe that our beautiful girl is now 12 years old and in middle school. Where has the time gone? And every time, when I look at this picture it brings tears to my eyes,...every time.

So sweet. The one regret I have in life is I never had kids. Oh, I have my step son but he was already grown when I arrived. Congrats and blessings.

Just lovely. We were blessed with 2 healthy boys buy my wife wanted a girl. It didn't happen so I suggested adoption. Next thing you know the dudes are 12 and 8 and the ship has left the dock.......lucky kid, too!
