Today was the day. Our girl is with us. Words cannot express our emotions and true joy.
I spotted Ava as soon as we walked down the stairs (with our group) going into the Civil Affairs Office to pick up our babies. She was twirling and dancing around with two pigtails in her hair. No one had to point her out to me - I knew it was her. I started crying and crying with joy and amazement. She was the center of attention for the entire time we were at the Civil Affairs Office. She has such a magnetic personality - we're amazed at God's goodness and grace. She is perfect for us. Jim had her laughing while we were hanging out there at the office. She was the only baby laughing. You all know how much we like to laugh in our family!
Here are a few of her pictures. She truly is amazing - I'm not just saying that. One of the ladies in our group at dinner tonight said that if there is a "Miss Congeniality Award" for the group, Ava gets it.
Without further due - here's our girl, Ava Lu!!!!!
