to sing and to dance

I could feel the emotion in those pictures.
I wasn't in love with Cady's referral pictures either. She didn't smile in the pictures. I had fallen in love with MY concept of who she would be all those months, and when I saw the pictures I was very much afraid that I would not love her or that she would not love me back. Who was she anyway??? On Gotcha Day it was as if we knew each others' souls. It was etherial. It was Heaven blessed. BTW, she smiles easier than any child I've ever seen now.


Such beautiful heartfelt pictures. Thank you for sharing your joy and fears with us. Tahlia is simply lovely.

Congratulations on three wonderful years.


LOVE the pics, happy three years!!!


Ok, so now I'm sitting here at work crying... all happy tears :)

That first pic of you holding her is what got me going! Thanks for sharing, this was a great post... :)


OH, these are the best....I love the one w/you crying the best! Really beautiful.


Absolutely priceless photos of such an amazing time.


Absolutely priceless photos of such an amazing time.


I love the look on Tahlia's face in the last photo. It's kind of like, "OK, I'll let them take ONE MORE picture!" Hee hee. You have a sweet, lovely family!


You know how I feel about your video!!! I cry like a baby everytime. That one picture of you with Talley is the best picture ever.

I watched only the first couple of minutes of your video. I was bawling, so I couldn't continue. Your reaction to her and the pictures that ensued was breathtaking. Thanks for sharing and maybe one day, I will be able to watch the video in its entirety.


I got the goosebumps when I saw the photo of you holding her for the first time! It reminds me so much of when I first held Julia (they're from the same SWI). There sure were a lot of emotions those first days and I'll never forget them.


Sandra, I remember so clearly when you got Tahlia's referral and then traveled for her. I rememeber seeing these exact pictures posted on your old website and thinking what a stunning little girl she was/is. Seeing your tears of happiness joked me up as I could tell you had fallen in love with this sweet little girl. Wow, that was 3 years ago already and look what a beautiful, smart, silly little girl your Tahlia has become. Happy Anniversary and have a wonderful 4th of July!!!


Happy Anniversary!!

I can't believe that Tahlia has been with you guys for 3 years now. It seems like she came home so recently, & yet, I could swear that she's been home forever. So many things have happened during this time - best of all, Tahlia has grown into an amazing little girl with so much confidence in her world that she flies through life.


Beautiful....just beautiful! ;)


Tahlia is still just as adorable as she was then...


I can see why you are in love! Congrats! I can't believe it has been three years!


WOW has the time gone fast!! I'll never forget meeting you at the White Swan and Matt and John F. telling me I needed a beer or I was going to have a nervous breakdown. I don't remember anything about our meal at Lucy's except that! Then we met our girls and the nerves were gone!!! Like you when I had Amelia in my arms I just knew it was right:) I'm so glad we met that day and have been able to keep in touch through our blogs. Tahlia's cute cheeks are forever ingrained in my brain:)


Three years must feel like forever!
COngrats on being a family with your girls for so long!

I just love your honesty
