My Little "Flashlight"

Two year ago, I received one of the most important phone calls of my entire life...the call letting me know that I had a baby girl living in Ethiopia :o) I will never forget that phone call. In the matter of thirty minutes I learned the history of my tiny, beautiful baby girl.

The call was incredibly bittersweet. My sweet girl endured more heartache in her first six months of life that most people endure in an entire lifetime.

I learned that she is a fighter...I learned that she is resilient...I learned that she is mine. Before the phone call, I knew nothing about her, but I loved her. After the phone call, I was in love with my daughter.

My first glimpse at our little flashlight :o)


Have I shared the story of her name? It is one of my favorites :o)

Happy Referralversary Julianne Fanose!!!! I am so lucky to be your mommy!!!!
