Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Ten Years

Ten years ago an answered prayer and the reason we landed on the international adoption scene was born.  I was induced around 8am and spent the morning and early afternoon surrounded by family and friends. 

At 2:05pm we welcomed our daughter, Isabel Lee into the world.  We laughed with surprise when they said she weighed 8 lbs 1oz.  She looked so tiny to us!  But, then we had been lugging around 4 year old twins before she came along. 

A tiny perfect addition to our family.

Nothing but sweetness from the beginning. 

She has always had a way of experiencing life to the max!

And she was born to be a princess.

From the first birthday to this one, Isabel has been a bright ray of sunshine in every day of our lives!

Happy Birthday to my sweet girl!

She is so sweet! I have to tell you - she reminds me so much of Lucy from Chronicles of Narnia. So much so, I feel with all certainty that she has a british accent! LOL!

She is a beautiful girl!

I hope she had an awesome 10th birthday. She's such a cheerful, happy girl! She had some amazing eyelashes in those baby pictures! Like a little porcelain doll!
