Happy 4 Years 4 my Lily!


My sweet sweet Lily was placed in my arms 4 years ago today. The love that I felt was unmeasurable. I was so very very thankful that God had chosen me for her. The time has gone way too quick for me. If I could slow down time I would. But I will enjoy each day because I know we are not promised tomorrow.
On a side note from the previous post about her "adoption" a few days after that conversation she said, "I don't want to be adopted, I just want to be a plain old Brannon" but on the other hand...today was her special anniversary day to be a bit spoiled and I think she really enjoyed the "specialness" of it.

Hard to believe...I remember when she was just a twinkle in your eye:)I remember when you approached me and Olivia on the soccer field and we talked of adoption. Happy anniversary Lily....4 years of being a Brannon.

Happy Adoption Day, Lily!
I so love talking to her at playgroups. She is a lot of fun. I'm enjoying getting to know her and Cali.

I actually found this blog when googling to try to find an adoption-friendly OBGYN in Cary (I know, it's a strange google), and have now read a ton of this blog AND booked an appointment. :) So glad to have found your journey chronicled here, it is beautiful. We are newly home from Ethiopia with our two new little ones, and China keeps popping up on our radar, so who knows where God is leading us. Thanks for this great blog; our story is here: www.roepnack.blogspot.com
