Beach Baby





We celebrated Hannah's Gotcha Day on August 4th with such gratitude! It's been one year since we brought this little gift home and boy how she has flourished!

Spending a couple of weeks down in Newport was the best way to commemorate our first year with her. We had gone down last year at this time and being there brought back so many memories of our first few weeks with her.

Auntie "Da" (my dear friend Wendy who traveled with me to get Hannah) came down for a visit. Hannah kept calling her Da in Kyrgyzstan and the name has since stuck.
