ever changing



Wow I have been a bad blogger but I have a very good excuse....My lovely daughter that is growing so fast I can barely keep up....We are having a great time and each day that passes she is changing so much. We just adore her.....
With each day that does pass I very often think of her birth mother and her family we met in Ethiopia. How they are coping without her, how often they are thinking about her. Are they thinking about her as often as we are thinking of them and there sacrifice they made.
To be honest I did not think about this journey as being so attached as I am to her birth mother, it was brief but life changing. I wish I would of told her more things and asked more questions, but when I look back it was perfect, just the way it was. Her and I hand in hand the whole time, taking in all that she did for us. I will always hold her so close in my heart, and talk to her often in hopes that she here's me so many miles away....We are blessed in ways unimaginable.

My job now is to teach Finley all that I know about the wonderful country she came from and her beautiful birth mom's love for her... It will be a story I will be telling her all through her life, the incredible love we both share for Finley Melat.........
