Celebrating 5 Years of My Vera

It's here! It's here! It's here!

Our five year adoption anniversary with Veronika Hope Spicer!

We always celebrate the day that our adoption is made official. In Russia, that occurs the day you go to court. Five years ago we stood in front of a judge and promised to love and adore our little girl forever. Easy!! She still makes my heart sing.

Tomorrow I should have some time to reminisce about our time with Vera in Russia, but as for now I have to get busy putting the finishing touches on our family celebration tonight!

I included a picture of most of the clan dressed up to go to a wedding, with Vera so sweet and beautiful in her pink. The rest of the pics, however, are more like the Vera we all know and love. In other words, a complete mess!

Wow! Five years! Vera is just a joy, and I can tell from all of her pictures she has quite the personality too!:) I praise God that she is home surrounded by her loving and adoring family. Give her a hug from me, and enjoy your celebration.

Happy Day indeed! Love the pictures. Why did she have a bandaid there? LOL

I hope your celebration was delightful - I know it was.
