Happy Gotcha Day Saylor!

I cannot even believe it has been an entire year since our precious daughter was forever placed in our arms.  I will never forget that day as we had completed a very long flight, and it was assumed that we would want to go to our hotel to get some rest prior to heading to Hannah’s Hope.  Despite our exhaustion, all we wanted to do was get back to our sweet girl!  Much to our delight, Wass(our driver) took us straight to Hannah’s Hope and we made a beeline to pick her up:)  We haven’t looked back since!  God has been so faithful to us over the past year, and Saylor has adjusted amazingly well.  We truly can’t remember what life was like before she joined our family.  I thought I would pick a picture from each month over the past year so you can see just how much she has grown.  Words cannot adequately express how much joy she brings to our family, and we are forever grateful that we are the ones God chose to be her parents!

Tonight, we went to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate Saylor’s Gotcha Day.  We then came home to enjoy cupcakes!

She had some tomatoes with spicy sauce on them, and she kept saying “hot”; however, she kept reaching for more.  Such a funny girl!

She thought she was big stuff with her big straw:)

She wasn’t sure what to think of her cupcake and the singing, but the smiles came as we imitated blowing out a candle!
