Phoebe was adopted in December by the Smith family in Ohio.
Lisa Smith and I stayed close during our adoption processes and remain close. ANYWAY.....
So, they asked if I would be seeing Phoebe, because they had her crucifix also.
They were both wrapped very nicely in a piece of paper. Each with their names on it. They made sure that I knew which was which. This is important, as it is their only worldly possession and I'm sure was given to "protect" them. I am very thankful to have this.
So here is Mila all bundled up in her car seat ready to go!!! WITH ear covers (Lisa warned me ahead of time to be sure to get a hat that cover her ears, she DID NOT do this and had to buy one here)
We headed straight to the photo shop to take her passport pictures:
Then we got to go "home" (to the apartment)
She was a little timid at first
soon enough, she was everywhere!
She admired the outside (it's no Texas, though)
Mommy gave her her very first mommy bath
Then we ate... IN BED... and layed by mom and dad
Morning came and Mila was a little confused,
until mommy gave her her tiger and rhino and she smiled...It all WASN'T a dream...
And we are planning on living happily ever after, an orphan no more.
