4 years ago today we finally arrived in Ethiopia and our family would forever be changed. Today was the day we got to meet our Brecken Hope for the first time and we were blessed to become a family of four. After two of the longest years of paperwork and waiting and having to change countries and adoption agencies and 48 hours of traveling with a three year old we were finally in Ethiopia meeting our daughter for the very first time. I look at her now and see my sassy, funny, independent, sweet girl. Our life would never be the same without her in it.
Brecken Hope Arsema - I am so blessed to be your mama. You challenge me, you make me a better mom. You have grown so much over the last year. We are so proud of you. You have come a long way B-Hope and I pray for the year to come that you will continue to grow and spread your sweet wings. Love you sweet girl.
