My Birthday Wish!

"Be careful what you wish for" has always been my motto, but not anymore! The smoke swirl of all those extinguished birthday candles barely had a chance to dissipate before granting my birthday wish this year. MORE PICTURES!

There happened to be another family who adopted a child th
rough the Dillon India Program in the 90's who went back to visit the orphanage while on vacation. While there, they took pictures of our Devi Rose. These were taken on March 20th, 2007. Patrick said he teared up when viewing this photo for the first time...seeing someone hold our girl!

And if I wasn't spoiled enough, here is our precious little one having sweet dreams at 2 and a half months. This picture was taken on February 7th 2007, long before we knew she was ours. Receiving photos of a child this young is rare and we feel so incredibly lucky to have it.

Oh my, she is just beautiful! Stunning! Her beautiful skin, those deep eyes, she is just so smooth and delicious. Each photo is like a puzzle piece, revealing another moment in her life. You can really see what she looks like now. Devi is perfectly lovely. You must be thrilled to pieces!

I just realized that I could leave comments on this!! She's so beautiful! I can't wait to meet your little girl and see you two holding her and cooing at her! And don't forget....I'm game to be Devi's official babysitter! Wow..not long now, huh! But I'm sure not soon enough for you!

She reminds me of the delicate peanut Tessa was at that age. At one year she only weighed 13 lbs. and wore 12month clothes. I have such fond memories when I look at these fabulous pictures. It is so amazing how God has worked this process with these amazing glimpses into her life to keep you going. Devi Rose is so beautiful! Happy Belated Mother's Day!!!
