Chris and I went to pick up our sweet baby girl. I will never forget picking her up and Safi putting her arms around me and I could just feel her sigh and relax, she knew she was safe. Playing with her on the floor, then heading out the door and Chris chasing after her down the sidewalk. Safi fell down and Chris just knew they weren't going to let us keep her.
Putting her in the car seat and then driving off looking at each other, oh my gosh we have a kid!! Getting to the stop sign and saying, "Now what?"
We went to McDonald's, we had no idea what she liked to eat. Safi had french fries that she used to put B-B-Que sauce in her mouth. (gross!!) Then it was off to Target, now I could buy some clothes since I knew how big she was.
To the doctor's office to have everything checked out and then finally home. Safi was exhausted by the time we finally got home. And I'm pretty sure Frank was about to crawl out of his skin waiting for us.
Everyday it gets harder and harder to remember a time when Safia Jane was not a part of our lives. This journey seems much longer than two years, and I don't mean that in a bad way. Safi has brought so much life and joy to our lives I can't imagine being without her.
Now to work on last year's birthday, Christmas, and this year's birthday wish...a baby brother. Safia Jane, we are trying and we hear you girlfriend, Mommy and Daddy are doing everything they can.
We love you Ladybug!!
