Happy Birthday Julia
On this day, 6 years ago, a little girl was born on the other side of the world. We didn't know her, and she didn't know us. 4 years later, however, we knew her and loved her, and were getting ready to travel across the ocean to meet her and complete the process of bringing her into our family. 2 years have passed since then, and it's hard to believe how much all of our lives have changed. With the love of a family, Julia has learned to walk, motion sign language, and developed interests in things like music and swinging in a baby swing. She has taught us how to be patient, love deeper, and appreciate every bit of progress, every moment of happiness, love, or triumph, that comes our way. Happy Birthday, our little Julnichka baby.
