One year ago today. . .

One year ago today, we received and accepted, the referral of our fourth child and second daughter, Baby L. Here is the first photo we saw of her. . .




And here she is a year later. . .




We are celebrating today with a homemade cake and Jollof Rice - my first attempt at some good Ghanaian cooking. (Aimee - if you are reading this - Jollof Rice!! - and a vegetarian version!)

Hi, Williamsons!
Now, here's the deal with jollof. You must eat it EVERYDAY, for at least two months! It is only after this prolonged period that you will truly appreciate its powers. I've never seen Lyd's referral photo before. I'm so glad you posted it.

Yes, I know, everyday! :) I'm not sure I could have eaten it again without the 7 month interlude. But 7 months was just enough time to be able to enjoy it again.

I emailed you all today!
