First post placement report

I can hardly believe it is time for me to be doing my first post placement report for Victoria. August 10, 2009 we stood in a court room in Kyiv, Ukraine and officially "gave birth" to our second daughter.

I will be mailing the report out this weekend. While I'm sure it will get harder to fill out each year, I feel like there is so much for me to include on this years report. One section is titled "New accomplishments/achievements". Wow, where do I start. Everything she has done this past year has been a new accomplishment/achievement. It is nice to go through each section of this report and truly see how far she has come in this last year.

Well, I arrived home from Ukraine Thursday night and pretty much crashed as soon as I walked through the door. I spent all day Friday (before leaving for work Friday evening) running around trying to get ready for Victoria's birthday party.

I kept the party small and it was very nice. Victoria had a great time!

Here are a few pictures from Victoria's very first birthday party!!!!

The newest Whites

I wanted to post a few pictures of the newest members of the White family. They are, of course, the reason I am here. I am so blessed to be able to meet these sweet angels. I can't wait to watch them grow in their family and really blossom and flourish.

This is Peyton. He just turned 3 in July. He is so, so cute. I have been in love with this boy ever since I met him last summer. He was happily drinking out of a water bottle and licking his lip when I snapped this picture.

This is Jessa. She will be turning two at the end of August. She is such a squishy love. I just love to hold her. She is so happy and has the cutest little laugh.

This is Amelia (Mimi). She will be one the middle of September. She is the most content little baby. I just loved watching her stare up into her Mommy's eyes while she was drinking her bottle.

Isn't it wonderful that these children will know the love of a family. A few more days little ones and you will be home where you belong.
