eight years of loveliness

Monday, June 24, 2013

Eight years ago, this lovely young lady joined our family.

Yana was a sweet, vivacious, energetic, fun-loving seven-year-old who stole David and my hearts.

It took over a year-and-a-half to finalize Yana's adoption. We were so happy that she was now officially our daughter!


 Yana is growing into such a beautiful young woman. She still loves to have fun, but she also has a deep, thoughtful side that is a joy to see more of each year.

Thank you, Jesus, that you have knit our family together by Your own amazing design! Thank you especially today for Yana. She is so wonderful! Thank you that Yana is our beloved daughter. Thank you for eight years of watching her grow and mature. Thank you for Your constant love for her and for our family.

We love you, Yana! We are so glad that we get to see your lovely self each and every day!
