Happy Referralversary!!

I cannot believe it has been one year ago today that we first laid our eyes on Lindiwe! In some ways it feels like yesterday, and then in other ways it feels like a lifetime ago. I remember shaking when I realized that the new email message on my phone was from the ministry in Rwanda! I was supposed to be eating lunch at work, but my stomach was doing flips!! I called Dan and told him to get to my work as soon as he could... I think it took him about 40 minutes... as we stood together in my office waiting for the email to load, we couldn't believe the day had arrived. We were about to see a picture of our daughter!! It was so awesome! I just wept in Dan's shoulder, she was beautiful! Perfect! What an amazing memory! So, here it is... the picture we received on March 16, 2010:

And my, how she has changed!!! here is a recent one of her these days... I am learning how to care for her hair and the latest is braids :-)
