(Serenity was having a hard time smiling, sitting etc. so this is the best family picture we have!!)
Mom and her girls!!It was a wonderful day full of the spirit, family and friends.
The girls with Karmann and Ryan. Karmann was Priscilla's Developmental Specialist from about the age of 1 until she turned 3 and aged out of the program. She knew the girls birth mom and all the yuck that the girls have been through. I knew the moment she walked through our door she was somebody special. She first reminded me of my "Tooele" cousins, then we found out she was LDS and told us how she had been praying for these girls to find the right home. We have stayed in touch, even though she has moved to Arizona. We were so happy to share this special day with her and Ryan!!
The girls looked like little angels in their beautiful dresses that Mamoo, Becky's mom, made for them. She took apart Becky's wedding dress to make them extra special!! The girls LOVE their dresses!!
I LOVE this picture, and the story behind it. These four children, there is a little head right above Melody's, are in our ward, one of the girls is in Serenity's class, and the mom, in the green skirt, is Serenity's teacher. My girls LOVE this family. Their parents brought them to the Temple to see the girls and it made the girls feel so loved. Serenity spotted them first and yelled "my friends" and went running over to them. I love the smile on "Miss S's" face it makes me think she was just as happy to see my girls as they were to see them!
