Happy Gotcha Day

Brooke, Happy Gotcha Day sweetheart!!!
Two Years ago today, I held my sweet Brooke for the first time. I will never forget that day. I can picture everything just like it was yesterday. The babies was all waiting for us when we got to the civil Affairs office. Brooke's little face was so chapped. I can remember when I first held her she just looked at me. She could not take her eyes off of mine. Then after about five minutes she had this look of fear on her face. She started to cry. She cried and cried. Her passey became a great comfort. Once we was back at the hotel she was so happy. She bonded right away to us. She was saying momma and dadda within a few days. She was one happy little girl.
She has brought us so much happiness. She can make a sad moment turn into a happy one, just by her smile.

Happy 2nd Gotcha Day Brooke! She sure has grown a lot. Mia's cheeks looked exactly like Brooke's did. It took several weeks for the chapping to go away. :)
