Happy Forever Family Day, Sophie Le!!!

This day two years ago, we promised the government officials in Vietnam to take care of and to love Le Thi Phuong Thiet forever. I cannot imagine our family without sweet little Sophie Le Thiet! We are so lucky to be her forever family!

Wow, she has grown!! Here she is the morning we picked her up from the orphanage to take her to the Giving & Receiving Ceremony where she would legally become OUR daughter. This is one of my favorite pictures ever. Hillary Ashton walked through the doors of Sophie Le's room and asked her if she was ready to go.

This is when we got back to the hotel. I just LOVE the sweet little outfit she was wearing. It was red, white and blue and said "USA."

And today, May 15, 2009...I wonder how many more years I will be able to squeeze her into this outfit?

Thank you God for blessing our family with these sweet little girls!
