It is so hard to believe that a year has passed since we received our referral of Amilia Degenesh. I got the call on March 6th in the afternoon. I was painting her nursery when the phone rang. I picked it up, heard our social workers voice and screamed! We had been waiting 5 months for that call. After I settled down, I sat down on the basement stairs and she gave me all the information. I then called Nathanael and we both opened up our email- him at work, me at home, and we looked at her picture. What a moment. Seeing your child for the first time.
That night we celebrated and called family and friends.
Now, one year later... it has gone by too fast. It has been the hardest and most wonderful year of my life! After a hard 6-8 months, we have really settled in to our new family. Almost every day I look at her and get close to tears. She is such a blessing.
