On May 5th 2010 we adopted our daughter Isabella (Izzy for short). We have had her since she was 2 days old. She came to us in foster care. She was the sweetest and best little girl. We were unsure how it was going to turn out and we tried to guard our hearts the best we could but I really don't think that was possible. Then she started having medical problems and it was just one thing after another and it got to where she was with me and in my sight 24 hours a day. She was at high risk of choking so we were literally within eyesight of each other her whole life until the day she had surgery. So needless to say that guarding my heart did not work so good. So anyways on May 1st she turned 1 and it was such a sweet day and then we got to finalize the adoption on the 5th. I have gotten to celebrate Mothers Day for the last couple years because we have had children placed in our home for a couple years now but this year I am OFFICIALLY a mommy and I WILL be a mommy for every Mothers Day from now till the day the Lord takes me home.
