One year ago today.

One year ago today.

It was the day our world changed forever.  Jenna and I were at home on a Wednesday night.  Steve was at church at worship team practice.  My hair was wet and up in a towel.  I had just sat down waiting on Steve to get home.  Jenna hadn't started back to school, so we were hanging out about to watch some TV.

That's when Jenna brought me my work blackberry which was buzzing in my purse.  I was annoyed slightly because the thing buzzes all the time and I couldn't figure out why in heck she'd felt the need to dig it out of my purse and bring it to me that night.  Looking back I know it was simply Divine Intervention.

One year ago today. 

I clicked on the blackberry to see who was emailing me on  Wednesday night.  It was our contact at the adoption agency.  The message simply said, "Give me a call if you are still up".  I called the number, fully expecting to hear that we were re-logged in.  While that was part of the phone call, the part that changed our lives forever came first.

"We have a file for you to review."

The email was sent.  I put on my clothes and threw up my hair.  I called Steve and begged him to hurry home so we could look at the file together.  I still choke up thinking of that evening.  I managed to set up my tripod with my camera to record the moment our lives changed forever.

One year ago today.

We opened the file.
One year ago today.

The face appeared that changed our world forever.
And our world has never been the same...

My sweet Kylie-This day is burned into our memories as the day we fell in love with you.

13For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139:13-16
God knew you were a Taylor as He formed you in your birth mom's womb.  Even then, He created you as a perfect fit for our family.  Long before we knew you, you were part of us.

We love you!

Hard to believe it's already been a year! I know it was an exciting to see her picture that day, what a sweet memory :)
And it's been a year since we "met".
