baby girl is turning 6

Addison Belle I can't believe it has been 6 years since we adopted Addie. It seems like just yesterday that we were leaving for Alabama to get our precious bundle. Even though she is not a baby anymore, she will always be my baby girl. Here is a list of reasons we love Addie
Ever since we brought her home she has been a little snuggle bug.

She has a big beautiful smile. She is a happy girl and very social.

She loves to dress up and pose for the camera. She has won four baby contests.

She is a wonderful big sister.

She is doing great in school. She loves her teacher and all of the students and she is reading really well.

she is an awesome gymnast

and a beautiful dancer

We sure love this girl. She makes us smile all of the time. We are so grateful for adoption and that we were lucky enough to have Addie for our daughter.

This is a picture of Lola with my three kids. We have had the privilege of going to Lola's house three times. Once for each kid.
Lola volunteers her time and love to babies until their new adoptive parents can get them.

We chose to wait until birth mothers' rights were terminated before picking up our children. Lola was the primary care taker for the first two weeks of Addie and Peyton's life and for weeks 4-6 in Trey's. They couldn't have been in better hands. Lola sent us pictures and updates almost daily during those two weeks.

We all love Lola! We can't thank her enough for all she had done for our family and many many other families. There is a special place in heaven for her for sure. (her husband is pretty awesome too.)
