Oh my Lily, 10 years ago, you climbed right into our hearts and we've never been the same!

The day that they placed you in our arms was like a dream. We had waited so long to hold you and now we were all together...the day was absolutely were perfect.

If I had known then, what I know now, I would have been even more amazed.
You are a treasure beyond compare, my Lily!
Your strong love, your sense of justice in love, and your incredible confidence leave me in awe some days. I just can't wait to see all that the Lord will do in your life...I'm amazed by what He's already done!!

We love you so much, Lily, and we are so very grateful to be your parents. I often think of your birth parents and imagine what they must be like. I know that if they could see you today, they would be proud of the young woman that you are becoming. You are graceful, strong, smart, affectionate and full of love.

Happy Adoption Day, Lily!
Thanks for a decade of your wonderful, fervent love.
We adore you, our precious girl!
