One year ago, this sweet girl and I boarded a plane in Addis Ababa on her birthday and said goodbye to everything she had ever known. We landed the next day and celebrated both her homecoming and her birthday, still jetlagged and shell shocked. After the hardest, most stressful, most sanctifying year of our lives, we are giving thanks to God for this precious girl and for all the wonderful progress we have made in a year. Through it all, God has shown his faithfulness, His lovingkindness, and his great mercy. I am honored to be Yasmin's mama, and can't wait to see what God has in store for us in the year to come. #adoptionrocks #Godisgood #happybirthday Yasmin!
