Coming out of retirement on a special day

Four years ago tonight we received the call that changed our lives forever. Our daughter to be was born. We waited for what seemed like an eternity to get pictures from our agency director. I stared at my email for nearly an hour straight. I will never forget that moment opening the first picture and seeing her there. It truly was such a special moment. I absolutely cannot believe it has been four years. I feel like she has been with us forever yet it seems like just yesterday. There is no doubt she was meant to be our child. I truly wish her first mom in Guatemala didn't have to make the decision she did but I thank God every day that I was chosen to be her mommy forever.
