ONE year home!







Happy Anniversary Princess, you have made our family complete!

12 months= 2 heart surgeries, 11 pounds heavier, 3 inches taller, 6 inches of hair, an English vocabulary well above an average 3yr old, I could go on and on, but the pictures tell her story.

If you are reading this blog and contemplating adoption, just look what a family and lots of love can do for an orphan.

This year has flown by, I just can't believe a year ago today, we met this little girl.
The one year mark also means , we are done with adoption paperwork, no more post placement reports to China, no more adoption agency! We have been doing adoption paperwork since December 25, 2005.

I should add that we are going to do a re-adoption through our court system here, so we can obtain a birth certificate for Jadyn. We are hiring a lawyer to do the paperwork!

Hopped on over to your blog from No Hands But Ours. Thankful for people like you that post your stories for those of us waiting. Thank you... Jadyn is beautiful and an inspiration to us.

Just got home from vacation and took a second to read through all of Jadyn's surgery posts! I'm a blubbering mess right now....what a relief to know that this is all behind her! She looks amazingly healthy and happy!

Happy Gotcha Day Anniversary!

Happy 1 year Jadyn! YAAAY! Doesn't it feel good to have all the paperwork done? We also did readoption for Sofia and plan to do it for Sammy once she is home a year. We should so our last homestudy soon. Are you guys ready to go back yet? LOL! I would do it in a heartbeat if it wasn't so expensive. Who knows, maybe I can convince John in a few years. :)

Hugs,
Jonni
