we saw this face for the very first time and our lives have never been the same! It is hard to believe a year has already passed since we first saw Mia's sweet face! I remember it like it was yesterday. I opened the email sent to us by our agency containing her referral information and pictures. Her "mug shot" picture was the last picture I saw but it was the one that grabbed my heart immediately. Her eyes drew me in and captured my heart. I felt an instant connection to her. She was the one we had been waiting for for over three years. She was the one we prayed for, dreamt about, and longed for. In that one moment there she was. Revealed. She was the missing piece to our family puzzle. The road to her was long and difficult at times but I am so glad we took the journey that ultimately led us to one of the greatest blessings in our lives!
