... was one of the happiest days of my life. It was on September 30, 2002 that our family met our precious Mia for the first time. We were nearly bursting with anticipation and excitement. She was less than 5 months old and we had been in the adoption process for about 18 months. Now, six years later we can definitively say that when God brought Mia into our family it was one of His kindest mercies to us. Mia, we adore you!
