Family News

We have had some things going on that I have wanted to share, but needed to wait for awhile. Tonight, the night before Easter, we are finally able to share some family news. Last July we brought a 9 year old girl home to our family. She is now our daughter – Aria.

Aria is a blessing to our family and we are so thankful she is our daughter. Since we have not shared any pictures or any of her special moments in the past months I thought I would start by posting some pictures from when she first arrived this past summer. I also plan to continue to post more as she has waited a long time to be here on our blog and we want some of her special moments journaled here even though they are months in the past.

Aria took right to the outdoor kitchen. She helped get it cleaned up and ready to play in. She spent the better part of a day working in it.

Aria wants to learn to do everything that the other girls do. She took right to sewing and she got a sewing machine for Christmas. This picture is when Tess let her use her machine and taught her how to get started. After help from Bethany and Tess she has really taken off.

    Wow, that is a huge surprise! Congratulations on your beautiful new daughter who is as much a blessing to you as you are to her. She looks like she fits right in to your family, in her love of all the things her sisters like to do. I’m horrible with ages, but I’m thinking she is your youngest now?

  2. Congrats! Aria is beautiful!

  3. I have just been catching up on your blog and it took me a little while to get back far enough to learn how Aria fits into the family! She sure is beautiful. I hope she is settling in well <3
