One Year Since Referral!

Today is the anniversary of our referral of Miss Lucy!!! I can't believe that it has been a year. I really can remember getting the call so clearly. The time has just flown by and Lucy is just the most wonderful child. We are so blessed to have her in our family. In celebration of this wonderful day, we took Lucy to Gattieland. She was in awe of all of the games and little rides. She really only wanted to ride this mini carousel. Here are a few pictures from today and then I put together a video of some of my favorite pictures and videos since our referral. I hope you enjoy. I copied the idea from Annslee's Mom of taking her picture today holding her referral picture. I just loved that idea. Sherri, you were so close when you asked if yesterday was her referral day!!

She seems so thrilled that today is such a special day!!

In the fire truck. Not a big fan of this since it was right next to the carousel that she loved so much.

Riding the horse!!!



So CUTE!!

Who is that pretty baby?!?




We love you so much baby girl.

That video was adorable! She has changed so much since the first picture you saw of her! I remember when you got the referral of Lucy and keeping up with your travels while you were in Vietnam over Christmas, the greatest gift anyone could ever receive-a precious little girl!

Wow! I can't believe it's been a year already! It seems like just yesterday that you were showing the little snippets of that referral picture. Lucy is just beautiful and she has grown so much. :)

I can't believe it has been a year! I love the idea of the referral picture! She has changed and grown so much! The video you put together is amazing! Will you teach me how to do that:)???

mam said...

OK, like everyone else, let me say 1) how friggin' adorable(!!), and 2) I'm stealing the referral picture idea too in a few months, if our Lucy can be trusted to hold it and not to try to eat it by then. I'm kind of jealous that you still have warm enough weather to wear cute summer dresses...we've hit the bundled up stage here already.

Happy Referral Day!! I just love that referral day picture idea and what an adorable video! I've been following your blog since you travled to bring her home, and it's been amazing watching her grow!

Susan said...

A year? How is that even possible? I remember so very well when you got the referral of Miss Lucy. I was so excited for y'all. She's grown so much and is such a happy girl.

Okay, I'll admit I'm going to borrow the idea of the annual photos of the child holding the referral picture. We'll see if Petunia will cooperate. Whoever started that tradition, it was a great idea! Thanks.

Kelli said...

I have enjoyed following your blog-thank you for sharing all of your wonderful experiences. It has given me such insight as I start my own journey to Vietnam. Lucy is amazing!

Mia's Mommy said...

Isn't it truly amazing how as soon as you see that little face, you're filled with love. Then when bring your angel home the loves just grows and grows. Now, a year later, it's hard to imagine what life was like before. One year later and you wonder how your heart managed without the little one! Lucy is such a gift! Happy one year!
