some people become parents... {Hawaii Adoptive Parent}




some people become parents by giving birth....

we became parents by signing 1,763 documents. an amazing day surrounded by a village of people who love this little lady. 

it took me till she was one month old to call myself mom. i was scared she'd break my heart and leave. 
this little lady makes me proud everyday. she is an overcomer. a victor. a defeater. a conquerer. 
and god chose me to be her mother.
