My Little Lady turned 9 yesterday....my Sierra, Lou Lou, Little Bean, Miss Peach, Stinker, Prudence, Love, Sierra Bear...
We camped under the stars...just us and mother nature! After some gentle prodding from my husband, we gave in and decided we didn't need a silly tent to make everything right...no way, not us. We slept under the stars with the moon shining down on us and LOVED it! It's now one of my most favorite memories.
I am so thankful for her...and her sweet birth mother. I am a mother because of them and I will forever be thankful for the gift they brought into my life and for the gifts they are in my life. I dreamed of my baby for years and now I hold her, love her, kiss her, nurture her, and get to be loved right back.
My baby did grow in my heart and still does. Words can't adequately express the miracle of adoption and the miracle of Sierra. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to experience it and hope to again.
I love looking back and remembering all of the intricate little details of my life with her. So grateful I have been trying to document our journey together as a family. My love for her grows leaps and bounds every single day.
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart,
But in it.
