One Year Ago Today...

One year ago today we were boarding a plane to bring home our beautiful Olivia Viktoria.  It is amazing how adoption works.  You can't believe a year has gone by but yet it feels like your child has been with you forever! 

Our Olivia is such a wonderful and smart little girl.  Our first year with her has been so much fun!  Don't get me wrong, two kids is way more tiring, but we wouldn't have it any other way! 
As an adoptive parent I am always so annoyed when people say our kids are so lucky.  I totally understand what they mean.  I would not wish a life in an orphanage for any for any length of time let alone their entire childhood!  I guess it just bugs me that people don't recognize how very lucky we are as their parents.  Oscar and Olivia are our little miracles and we frequently discuss of incredibly lucky we are to be their parents.
