Adoption Announcement Card

I finally found the time to send out Isabella's adoption announcement cards. As I'm typing, I just realized that (last July) I completed Bella's adoption dossier and homestudy paperwork faster than I got her announcement cards out. Oh, what a year can do!
It looks a little goofy at the top because I edited out our last name (to keep our secret identity. Ha! Ha!)
I added in the little rhyme (under her picture) that came to me as I was rocking Isabella to sleep. To me it was the perfect personal touch- and a reminder of God's miracle of adoption.


P.S. A couple of people asked me to post some of the Guatemalan recipes I used for Bella's party. I'd be happy to, and I'll post them very soon!
Have a happy Friday!!!

LOVE the announcement. She is absolutely PRECIOUS!!! What a difference a year does make. This time last year, I was on my way down for a 3rd visit trip to convince a judge to release and approve our case, since our attorney was using us for her own political agenda. God is good and always brings you through to the other side. Now... she is helping me type on the computer and aggrevating her big brother... life is great!!

What stunning photos of Isabella and her family. I love the announcement, very creative. The photography is stunning. Are you the photographer? You as a family are very privileged. Don't forget to always keep a colour printout of your posts on your blog. I am sure Isabella will appreciate to read her life story one day when she is older. With warm regards from Desire in sunny South Africa.

I have got to tell you this.....The birthday picture of Bella eating her cake and making the face like the frosting is nasty. I copied it and sent just the picture to my mom and said, does this look like stella ? and she emailed back and said yes of course it does. she thought i was trying to fool her with stella's own picture. I fooled her own grandma.......she seriously thought it was stella. too funny. courtney

Absolutely precious - just like everything you do for that little doll baby! Today was Gigi's first birthday, and she wore the "PGN tiara" that you gave her. I will post pictures later.
Love,
