You knew it from the very beginning that there was something special about her!! I love it that you knew and you went after that feeling. God definitely had his hand in that one!

Ohhhhhhhhhhh MY HEART!!!
I can SEE, I can SEE why you fell in love! Anita, she is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! 143 million (or so) less one beautiful little girl no longer an orphan!!! What a blessed little girl - and clearly how blessed ALL of you will be!! I love how God works ... the posts about being content with 3 kids and maybe not having any more are popping up in my head for some reason and then a trip to Ghana seemed to CHANGE IT ALL (I'm sure it was more complicated than that) :)!!! It is amazing how God gets us exactly to the place He wants us to be - CONTENT and at PEACE - and then BAM new journeys for our lives!!! I hope that all made sense :) All to say I am THRILLED for ALL Of you and am CELEBRATING with you AND she is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
