Gotcha Day 2012

Happy Gotcha Day, Alemnesh!!!
  I cannot believe that it has been a year already, it seems like just yesterday we were flying home from Ethiopia with a scared, quiet little baby.    I am so thankful for all the other families that traveled with us - they made coming home bearable:)
A year later she is loud, full of spunk, and still the cuddliest, funniest little one year old ever! It has been a year full of laughing, crying, and many new discoveries about our precious daughter and ourselves.  I would not change it for the world.
Alle, momma loves you to the moon and back.  I am so blessed that God gave you to me - you bring spunk and laughter to everything we do!
We love you Alle!
