1 Year Already!

Today, June 13th is a special Day (the official day).

This month, a year ago, we had all the Coster's over for a spaghetti dinner, a couple nights before Garin, Sandra, Cole and Kai left for China to get Gemma. A long 3 week trip that changed all of our lives, only for the better, they came home with a B-E-A-U-tiful daughter.

Here they are right before leaving our house. 6.9.08.

Here is Sandra and her beautiful daughter, Gemma.
2 Brothers and 1 Sister.

Here is a picture of Gemma (her brothers, and her cousin) experiencing the 4th of July for the 1st time.

I think this is the first picture I had taken with my niece.

And here she is with her dad, throwing poppers.

And now, to present day. Myself, Gabe in the front pack, Cole, Gemma and Kai. 6.7.09.

Gemma, we are so happy you became part of our family. We look forward to celebrating with you for many years to come! ~~~Luv You~~~
