Life As We Know It

Sisters Adoption
When I look at these pictures [taken by the mega-talented Tess Irene Photography], I get a little teary-eyed because I think about a summer that went by way too fast.

I think about these girls -- born hundreds of miles away from one another to different women and into different circumstances -- and how so many things had to fall into place for them to be chosen as sisters.

I look at this girl -- the one who first made me a momma -- and I'm so grateful for the joy she has brought our family since the day we first held her in our arms.

And then I swoon over this carefree beauty who joined our family 18-months later, and I wonder how I got so lucky to be chosen as her mom.

Five years ago, if you would've asked me what my family would look like, I would've thrown my hands up and said, "Who knows?" Infertility had robbed us of so much hope. It left us feeling broken and doubtful and defeated.

But now?

Now I look at these girls and think about our family and how I can't imagine life without them.
