Happy Forever Family Day, Elena!

One year ago today, Chris, my mom, and I hopped on a plane to Guatemala to bring home Elena. We didn't have pink, but Chris was scheduled to deploy in less than a week. Thanks to prayers from family and friends and the intervention of Chris's two senators from Wyoming and my Congressman from NC we were granted pink that day and had our embassy appointment the next! What a year it has been -- I'll post more later.

HAPPY FOREVER FAMILY DAY!!!!!! It's a totally amazing feeling, isn't it!? So exciting to think they have been with you a year, and kind of sad to think that a year has passed by so quickly! Here's to many more wonderful years ahead!
