Abigail Rose is our sweet daughter. She was adopted in July 2013. Her adoption story is very dear to us as are her birth parents. They are some of the sweetest people I have met! Abi is truly lucky to have two families who love her so much!

We got to be at the hospital for Abi's birth. This picture is our very first family photo.We could not be happier at this moment! This was taken just after she was wheeled into the room after being cleaned up in the nursery. We hadn't even held her yet - just stared and cried and laughed. The moment I saw her, I fell in love with her. I knew she was mine.
