Gotcha Lola Joy- 2 years!!

Two years ago today...God gave us Lola Joy Kalkidane!!! Our hearts were so full of love for this sweet baby girl!

We were overcome and overwhelmed with the presence of the Lord. How He had chosen her for us...and us for her. He had gone before us. He had cared for her. He had loved on her.

And finally, we beheld God's precious gift. We celebrated that gift of JOY today. It was Lola Joy day!!

We went to the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown of our favorite spots.

Then we headed to get some Ice Cream..a favorite treat of LJ's!

Off to Graeter's we went!!!

Here she is...our spunky little bundle of JOY!!!

My life has forever been changed since I met this little girl. She is a one-of-a-kind treasure! She is sassy...spunky...sweet...loving...bossy....hilarious...super smart...and my daughter. So honored and blessed. So thankful we said yes to the call God placed on our hearts.


Be the Hope 4 Orphans!
