We've got our angel!

Nothing prepared us for how the moment would feel when we finally held our baby girl. No amount of advice, no articles, no books, nothing! The moment we saw our Isabella we were breathless. She is so much more beautiful than all the pictures. She's happy and healthy, everything we've prayed for months for. And the overwhelming love is unbelievable. We can't wait to share this happy lovable baby with everyone.

She is so much bigger than we were expecting. She has 5 teeth, two uppers and three lower. She is crawling and walks if you hold her fingers. And boy does she love Kevin. One of our fears was that she would be afraid of Kevin because he's a big guy, but she has taken to him and is already a daddy's girl.

We have our Embassy appointment in the morning and plan to travel to Antigua on Thursday. When we got home we will have amazing photos to share with all of you.

Thanks so much for your prayers! They have been answered!!!!!!!!!
