One year with Zoe
Today marks one year with Zoe. This year has gone by so quickly! She has brought so much joy and laughter to our home.
She became very comfortable with us, very quickly. I think she instantly knew that her life was going to be better and she wasn't interested in going back.
This girl has a BIG personality. She is very dramatic and her antics make us laugh. She makes it difficult to get angry at her. She is affectionate. She is smart. She is everything that a child who spent the first 3 1/2 years in an orphanage should not be.
She is an example of an "easy" adoption. Her paperwork was fast. She adjusted so well. She fits right in. She hasn't upset the dynamics of our family. She accepts discipline and guidance.
We are so glad we can call her ours.
I didn't give you the gift of life,
But in my heart I know.
The love I feel is deep and real,
As if it had been so.
For us to have each other
Is like a dream come true!
No, I didn't give you
The gift of life,
Life gave me the gift of you.
