Sweet two years

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tamra @ 7:45 pm

I still can’t believe that at this time two years ago we had just found out that we had guardianship of our sweet Rani and were preparing to take the trip to India to get her.  What a road it has been since that time.  It has been a rollercoaster of emotions, both good and bad, both happy and sad.  And here we have come full circle and it’s like we never began but have always been.  Rani is vivacious, lithe, beautiful, spunky, and just plain wonderful.  We are so grateful to the Lord for guiding us to her…she is a sweet blessing in our lives. On the 31st she will be celebrating two years home and five years on this earth.

In honor of Rani’s fifth birthday and second “gotcha day” I have created this slideshow.  It has almost all the pictures we have of Rani as a baby in the orphanage up until this week.  Thank you so much to Shelba for the song idea…it’s just perfect. (it’s a Windows Media file so you might need Windows Media Player to play it)

    I just watched the slideshow. The pictures from that first day in India are heartbreaking, but she looks SO happy ever since 🙂 You and she are both so blessed! I also got teary seeing your family at the temple, especially the picture of Rani with the rose – it was beautiful. She is so lucky that you found her!

    I just cried through Rani’s slideshow! What a journey, and what a precious little princess she is. I hope we can meet you all someday when we get our little one home from India. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    (waiting and praying for guardianship from Kolkata so we can bring our Indian princess home)
