Three years ago today, we laid eyes on a small one by one and a half inch photo of our Indian princess, Devi Rose. Naturally, we printed many copies of that photo as large as the pixels would allow and displayed them everywhere; some were in our wallets, our cars, at work, at our table and some even found their permanent home in our coat pockets so we would never be without her.
Today, I can't imagine going a day without seeing her beautiful smiling face or experiencing the tiny voice that keeps me in stitches most of the time. That voice. That sweet articulate voice is also the one that tells me we are best friends, I'm the best momma ever and that she loves me. Wow that is powerful stuff coming from a 28 pound 3 and a half year old. What an unbelievable beginning that day brought. We are blessed beyond measure.
On the eve of this monumental day we also received wonderful news about our doll baby Treya. Our dossier is being reconstructed so that we don't have to wait for the first one to be located in Hyderabad and mailed to Pune. This stroke of genius is the result of choosing a reputable and reliable agency to act as our advocates.
So tonight with one Indian princess asleep in her big girl bed upstairs and photos of our other baby doll in our wallets, our cars, at work, at our table and some in our coat pockets; we remember the joy of March 23rd, 2007 and sing...
Isn't she lovely; Truly the angels best. I am so happy. Devi is heaven blessed. I can't believe what God has done; For two he's given life to one, Devi is lovely, made to love.
