Seven Months a Family

Little light, girl of a thousand goofy faces, Miss Magnolia Zinash McBride,

Seven months ago you walked into my arms and made us a family. I will never be able to express to you just exactly what it's meant to me to become your mother, to be your mother every day, to see your legs lengthen and your eyes brighten and your countenance change. Ababi and I love you all the time, every day, with our whole hearts.

our fine little family

Thank you for being the you that you are. We treasure you.

Hug, kiss, honk-a-nose,
Your Mami

  1. Congrats!

    The joy -- and serenity -- on Zinashi's face is absolutely gorgeous. She's radiating -- and so are you!

  2. It is so hard for us to remember last fall before you went to Ethiopia. Seems like she has always been part of your family. :-)

  3. Awesome pic! Everyone looks so perfect!

  4. Thanks, everyone! We have trouble remembering what life was like before Zinashi; she just fits so well in our family.
