Reilly Valentina Thornell
We have kept it on the down low enjoying the process as a family!
We committed to her the end of November and worked quickly to get her home.
The kids actually found out about her from Jingles (our elf) and were SO excited about it all!
We were submitted in February and traveled the end of March, the whole family!
The kids were SO excited to meet her. Poor girl was a bit overwhelmed, she NEVER thought a family would ever want her :( We kept coming back and visiting and played games, brought food and had fun and she said YES!
This is our first picture as a family! The day she said yes!!
Dan and I flew back to visit and have court, our first time being without kids ever!! It was like a second honeymoon :)
Legally a family!! :)
She is smart, sweet and a teenager :) We are working through learning a new language. Luckily she is not a picky eater, and loves the kids. She is so considerate of everyone. She left all her clothes and makeup, even her phone with her friends at the internat. She made such a brave decision to say yes to us and grab at her dreams.
She will be truly cherished and loved.
We are all truly blessed! :)
