Very Special Day

Friday we head to Cleveland for Sophia's Certificate of Citizenship Hearing. We are taking Katelyn and Frankie out of school so we can all go.We started this journey as a family and we will take the last and final step as a family as well.
So, I thought I would share our Journey to Sophia via our monthly updated pictures.
*First time we ever seen her, 19 days old*
*Almost 2 months old*
*Almost 4 months old*
*Almost 5 months old*
*Almost 6 months old*
*Almost 7 months old*
*Almost 8 months old*
*Almost 9 months old*
*Almost 10 months old*
*Almost 11 months old*
*Almost 12 months old*
*And of course now at 22 months old*

*As one chapter ends, another begins*

Best of luck. We have our re-adoption next week. You are right, one chapter is ending. I have a lot of mixed feelings about that. After being in so long, it is tough to let go.

Hope all goes well. She was beautiful the first day, and she just keeps getting prettier.
