Happy, Happy Birthday, Ellie Dear!

How did we go from this....

to this....

in just a blink?!?!?

And how did we get from here....

to here....

in just three short years?!?!?

On Briella's special day, we can't help but share our love and gratitude for the miraculous way Heavenly Father brought her to us. With all our hearts, we thank you, dear birth mommy Hillary. Now more than ever, I know for myself how hard it is to say goodbye to a beautiful baby girl. What an amazing gift you gave.

And, Oh, how we love her!
