one year ago...


I have a gazillion thoughts as I look back over the past year.

But I'll save them to ponder in my heart.

Today marks 365 days since our darling
Macy joined our family.

And we are so very proud of her
and happy that God strategically placed her in our home.

Isn't she cute??!!

And to celebrate this very special day,
Dad brought her flowers.
Because that's just what this Daddy does for the
special ladies in his life.

Is this not precious?

I'd say she's bloomed quite a bit from one year ago today,
wouldn't you?

Happy FOREVER FAMILY Day, special girl.

It's been a year? Wow!!! She certainly has blossomed, and she is adorable. It runs in the family.

Madeleine said...


I have tears in my eyes as I see her and her daddy hugging!! What a precious and beautiful picture.

And yes, it is a special day.

I wish many blessings to your amazing family.

Jean said...

She sure has bloomed into a beautiful young lady!!

Love the pic of her and Kelly hugging!! She looks so happy and content!!


Karin said...

Oh my goodness...that photo of Macy and her daddy hugging should go in a frame. *tears* SO PRECIOUS!! Happy Forever Family Day to all of you!!

What a beautiful young lady. I've enjoyed following your past year and look forward to your next journey.

Melissa said...

Happy Family Day !!!! Your family is so precious !!!!

Rachel said...

My heart!!! So happy for you. we love you Macy!

Cari said...

Wow...one year already! I can remember following your journey to bring her home, because we had just accepted the referral of our daughter and had to wait for China to process paperwork on their side. It's been 3 months for our Selah. I almost wish that I could see a glimpse of what one year will look like for us, then again I'm probably not ready to see that yet. :)

Happy Forever Family Day to you all!

Mandi said...

Wow, Lori, I cannot believe she has been with your family for a year already. My how time flies. She has changed so much. She is definitely one beautiful young lady.

Londa said...

Awww....so sweet! It's hard to believe it's been a year already. Thanks for letting us share in your joy. Love and blessings!

Beautiful. She is simply beautiful! Happy forever family day to all of you. : )

connie said...

Seriously - a year??? So....I've been stalking your blog for 12 months now - lol? Because that's when I first 'met' you, just a short time before we traveled.
What a sweet daddy! I can't believe how Macy has blossomed. May the next 365 days be even more glorious!!!!

Tesseraemum said...

Can't believe its been a year!
Macy really is growing into such a beautiful young lady!
Congrats!! You are sooo lucky to have her!! Sheri

Donna said...

A year??? Wait, didn't you JUST come home??
Happy Family Day Macy!!!
You all are so blessed to have each other!!

Shonni said...

It’s hard to believe a year has past.
And yes, she had definitely bloomed. I can see it in the pictures! She is so precious!
Yea for a loving daddy too!

Holly said...

Yes the Daddy Daughter pic brought me to tears as well. I never had that kind of Daddy in my life. I had a what-a-not-a-dad-at-all kind so I am always overwhelmed with emotion to see Macy's kind of Daddy :)
Happy 1 year!!

Tony and Rett said...

A year already? WOW. Time flies!

I'm so glad she found her family...she has truly bloomed!


Elissa said...

To celebrate, I cried this morning just like I did one year ago today :) Macy, I hope one day you'll know how many people were touched by your courage one year ago, and how many are delighted by your sweet smile one year later!! Happy Family Day to you all!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

AWWWW! I think that picture of Kelly and Maci captured the joy of adoption. It's so sweet!
And I can't believe I've seen two new family members arrive in your home. It seems like just yesterday!

Lou and Lorna said...

Oh, Lori, I'm so happy for all of you. The Daddy/daughter hug brought tears to my eyes. As you're pondering the events of the past year, feel free to send some my way. We're almost to the 2 month point, and it's hard right now, but your family gives me great hope.
All the best,

Janet and Kevin said...

Happy Forever Family Day beautiful girl!
