Yesterday we had an awesome time at the park with two families participating in our Adoption Sunday sessions.
First we had big sister Ellie and her new baby sister Eden. I first met this family back in February while at our adoption agency’s Adoptive Parent Orientation. They had this adorable little family come and speak to the rest of us about their decision to adopt, the process, and to show off their gorgeous new little one.
Small world…THIS is the family that spoke that month, and I remember my husband leaning over during their talk and whispering “WOW is that baby cute!!!”. We began emailing a few months ago after the girls’ mom read this blog and posted a comment, and now she’s my email buddy/profile helper/hand holder as we go through this process.
I want to open this post up with a photograph of their older daughter, Ellie. Mom made the comment once that she feels badly when people gush over how gorgeous Eden is, how beautiful, how soft her hair is and how brown her eyes. She says she has the urge to say “And Ellie is pretty too, you know!”. In the spirit of making sure Ellie knows that she is an integral part of this family, we made sure she got to feel some of the spotlight yesterday.
She ate it up
And her adorable, leaf-eating baby sister…Eden! She was adopted through our agency’s ABC program (African American and Biracial Children) at 5 months of age. And OHMIGOSH don’t you want to exclaim over her eyes and her hair and her absolute gorgeousness!?
I just adore this one. Pretty mommy, pretty baby…lotsa love.Share
