Eight years ago today I was sitting down at my table drinking coffee and planing out my day, when I got a call that would change my life forever. It was our case worker, wanting to know if we were able to foster a ten day old little girl named Anna. I didn't know then how long she would be with us, but when I got off the phone, I knew I was going to pick up my daughter that day.
Over two years after she was first placed in our care, she became ours, officially and forever. My daughter, my darling, my little baby girl. My Anna.
