One year ago today...

...I held, hugged, and kissed my tiny babies for the very first time.

It's so difficult to wrap my mind around our first meeting, even now.  Or to take in the fact that it's been an entire year since.  And at the same time, that it's been just a year.  So much has changed about our family, our home, the babies themselves....
Photos from our very first meeting.  Sweet Lula was so, so sick. 
At the beach over Christmas.  Those beautiful eyes and chubby cheeks!

That grief and loss marked their little lives (and mine) just a year ago, and that our family has flourished in the year since amazes me.  Humbles me.  Causes me to cry out:

Praise the LORD! Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!  Amen!
