My orphan no more!!

My orphan no more

The other day I looked at Presley and thought "She looks like an orphan" and of course I immediately realized the irony. She had messy bed head still and a chocolate covered face. Once she was an orphan. Now she has a family that not only gives her chocolate, but cleans it off her face and styles her hair into those adorable pigtails! Doesn't every child deserve this kind of a life?? Doesn't every family deserve to have a Presley in their lives??

Yes, everyone deserves a family - and a Presley (or a Tia!) I so wish there was an easy way to make that happen for every child and every family . . . I'm so incredibly thankful that these precious little girls are our little girls!

I cannot believe how grown up Presley is looking! She is a baby no more too :)
