Happy one year anniversary, Elizabeth!

So, one year ago today was the most incredible day of my life. It was the day that my Elizabeth came home. I remember the social worker brought her to my apartment at about 11am. Elizabeth was sound asleep in her car seat, wrapped in a green blanket. It was pouring rain outside, and I was so worried about her getting wet as I took her out of the car. She woke up pretty soon after I brought her inside and was very alert and smiley. I know the two social workers there were trying to talk to me, but I don't think I heard a word they said. All I could focus on was this beautiful, perfect little 4 month old baby girl who I was just meeting for the first time. I couldn't take my eyes (or hands) off of her.

I am so grateful, and so blessed to be Elizabeth's mother. I've been given far more than I asked for. I just wanted a kid. I didn't think I'd get such a good one! I didn't think I'd get this amazing, beautiful little girl, who is my daughter. We are such a perfect match, and so attached. It is truly a miracle; she is a miracle. I will never, ever know how I got so lucky.

So now, I leave you with a recap of the last 12 months. The best 12 months of my life .
