‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

My Girl

Here's my sweet Siberian princess. I guess I finally figured out the photo posting process on blogger. Anyway, I'm new to motherhood, new to so many things lately, and am excited to journal about them. I adopted my daughter a year ago from Siberia in southern Russia. Now I'm on the journey to bring her older sister home.

This photo was taken after she had been home four months. She had already gained fifteen pounds from the 72 pounds she weighed when I first met her. We went apple-picking with friends at a local orchard. It's exciting to get to know my little girl. I still can't believe I'm a mom!
