It's been 12 years since we flew home from Philadephia with our beautiful baby girl. 12 wonderful years. 12 crazy years. 12 enlightening...how can I be a better parent for this beautiful daughter of God years. I sometimes wonder if I'm cut out for being a mom of a 12 year old, this late in the game, but it doesn't really matter if I'm up for it or not, there is no going back.
We watched all sorts of old family videos over Mother's day weekend. Lexi wanted to see what Monson looked like as a baby, and how he acted etc... She was ecstatic to see how cute he was and said, "We will make beautiful babies together.....eventually. "
ANYWAYS........... we also watched the beginnings of our Laila at the adoption agency and when we came home with her to a house literally filled with excited family, neighbors and friends....after ten-o- clock at night, no less. It was wonderful!
Every year we re-live this exciting, faith promoting time. We call it our Laila day!
Thesse are the posts that tell our Laila story...if you want to go back and read about it.
