Little did we know on Sept. 30th, 2002, the day we brought Mia home ... we were also bringing home Ania. Of course, she wasn't born until three years later, but the Lord knew that when we said "yes" to Mia, we were saying "yes" to Ania too. Sometimes we say that Mia and Ania are one-and-a-half sisters. Half by birth (they have the same birthmom) and whole by adoption. Someday they will understand the significance of their relationship and marvel with us at the amazing work of God in their lives. Ania is cute, funny, the life of the party. She can hold her own against all her older siblings. Her trademark is her hair ... crazy, big, and with a mind of its own. She is Mommy #5 for Collin. (Which will have to be the subject of another post.) She loves to sing. She composes pretty tunes on the piano. She is going to be incredibly beautiful when she grows up. Happy welcome home day, Ania. I love you.
