October 14, 2005. The day we met. The day they handed her little 5 1/2 month old self to us in the Seattle airport. The day our lives got all mixed up together. For better, for worse. She became ours and we became hers. Adoption is amazing. God is amazing when He does this thing of bringing strangers together and giving them the same relationship as non-adopted kids have with their parents. It's amazing to me that He kept Ani & Mia together (they are biological half sisters adopted three years apart). Do you realize the details that had to fall into place for these two to grow up together? It's nothing any of us could have done. God did it. And I'm so thankful to be in on it.
Happy Welcome Home day, Ania. We love you.
