Forever Family Day TWO YEARS

Here we are at Lucia's HOMECOMING 2 years ago. I can't believe it. . .she somehow knew all those people were there for her! She popped right up from a dead sleep and showed off her huge smile, darling dimples, and radiant personality from the first moment she was in Spokane. Here brothers were so excited to see her and so proud of there little sister! Last year we celebrated at Grammy and Grampy's house. Here she was last year with her feisty personality.
And, last night we celebrated at OPA a little Greek family restaurant. Yesterday one of our dear friends referred to Lucia as a "ray of sunshine" . . .perfect!
Lucia's godparents Janny and Ryan came to celebrate with us.
Each forever family day we give Lucia a gift from Guatemala. This year she is really into backpacks so she got a monkey Guatemalan backpack. She has not taken it off. Lucia's new favorite face to make she refers to is as "the really silly face!" We all adore you Lucia you are the cutest, funniest, smartest two year old in the world. Thank you God for bringing Lucia to our family. We are so blessed to be her forever family. She spices up every life she touches!

it's hard to believe that it's been 2 years already. I remember reading the updates on your blog and all the preparations you did for her very special and you did so many thoughtful and intentional things to ease the homecoming & transition from family to family. I loved reading about the process because it was so foreign to me. So proud of you and all that you do for your kids. xo, kc
