Oh this girl! 😍💛🍁🍂 She just shines. Her smile and her joy penetrate so deep and she touches and affects everyone she meets. Her spirit and happiness are absolutely infectious! It’s incredible to witness and it brings tears to this proud mama’s eyes. She is truly something special, no doubt an angel sent by God. Hazel inspires me everyday... “Let them see You in me.” This is Hazel. She exudes all that is good, and i get to experience a little bit of heaven on earth having this precious girl as my daughter. I remember how dim life seemed through those years waiting for a child. A cloud of gray, a cloak of sadness, fear, and heartbreak. Then God. He was always there and He knew the goodness that He had in store for us. I wouldn’t change our journey for the world and I will forever be overcome when I look at this sweet child, a precious reminder of how faithful He is and how much He loves us. 😭❤️🙌🏼 Hazel, you are the light of our lives! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’ve always dreamed of being a mother, and for the longest time, during the darkest days of my life, I felt denied of the thing I longed for the most. I felt like a mother... a mother who didn’t have children in her arms yet. Now, I have the most amazing, precious daughter and I’m a proud, head over heels in love, mama! All because I was chosen, trusted, and loved by another to be just that. Not adoptive mama, just mama, in every sense of the word. We love Hazel’s birth mother with all our hearts and honor her every day by being the best mother and father we can to Hazel. ❤️ I look at this photo and it brings tears to my eyes because there is JOY. Where there was once doubt, pain, devastation, loss... there is utter, abounding joy. For those of you in the trenches, waiting for a baby to fill your arms, press on, have faith, and know that there is so much hope and joy for you too. I encourage you to follow the hashtags and stories of the amazing families in this adoption community and let them fill you, and lift you, up.

(Also, this is the last World Adoption Day pic, I promise! I’m the worst Instagram mom... weeks without a pic, then spam. 😂🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ And yay for new hair! 💃🏻)

#worldadoptionday with the greatest blessing of our lives. ❤️ Swipe left to compare Hazel to last year! It’s amazing how much sweet babes grow. I remember taking last year’s pic so clearly—Hazel was just a little over a month old. Now she’s a vibrant toddler who rarely sits still, but when she does, she holds my hand. This is love. This is family. I’m beyond grateful that adoption built ours, that God led us and Hazel’s birth family to one another. Adoption is so many things. It’s beauty. It’s brokenness. But above all, it is love. Pure, unselfish, unconditional love. From her birth mama’s arms to ours, this baby girl has known nothing but love and is blessed to have more family than most. And you can never have too much family or love. 💗

And then we were ballerinas! 👯💕 I love my tiny little dancer so much! 😍 (Though if you know Hazel, we should’ve dressed her up like a hip hop dancer. 😆)

Chillin’ with my gnomie! 😄🍄🌻 It was a beautiful day for a walk and we visited some of our favorite ladies at the local coffee shop. And, Hazel made a new friend! It was so cute! I also had to include some pics of her tantrum before we left... because hats. 🤦🏻‍♀️🙄😂

On October 2, 2016, at 9:22pm, Hazel Angeli came into this world. I really cannot believe that we are celebrating our sweet Hazel's 1st birthday. (Scroll to see her brand new and oh so tiny!) I don’t even know where to begin; it all feels surreal that this incredibly special girl has been in our lives for the past 365 days. Our daughter, prayed for and longed for. One year ago today, we were waiting in the hospital for this little one to be born. It was such a special time and it was much more than Hazel coming into this world—it was about two families coming together, it was about trust, in each other, and in God. Hazel’s birth mother is one of the most amazing people we know and we love her so dearly. Her strength, courage, bravery, sweetness, kindness, and that joy that just radiates from the inside out… we see it in Hazel every day. We also met Hazel’s birth family that day and it was one of the biggest blessings of our lives. I have never experienced so much love all around, such a deep, strong, true love for Z and this child. The nurses were absolute angels. God was all around us that day and our entire stay. I wish I could put it into words, but His presence ran so very deep.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To know Hazel is to know absolute joy. I know I’m her mama (a title that still brings me to my knees in gratitude), but she’s truly the best baby! She’s an old soul full of humor, mischief, love, kindness, joy, and has the biggest heart. She cracks us up every day and she always tries to make everyone laugh and does so successfully. Hazel Angeli, you are my everything and I love you with a love that I didn’t know existed. You are the light of my life and I do not know what I ever did without you. I am so blessed to be your mama!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. I know I’ve said this countless times, but I do hope to share the rest of Hazel’s adoption story because to tell it is to testify of His greatness and glory. I look at Hazel and I'm in awe at His faithfulness and His immense love for us. She is our answered prayer.

"Keep shining, beautiful one. The world needs your light." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today has been full of so much joy, love, and celebration as Hazel turned one. But I'd be remissed to say that the devastating tragedy that occurred in Vegas last night was not on my (broken) heart as well. 💔 I cannot fathom such a heinous act occurring--yet it did. It's difficult not to feel hopeless in a time such as this, for ourselves and for our children. So many prayers to everyone affected and holding my girl extra tight. Thankful for her bright positivity in the midst of a mourning world. Never stop shining, dear Hazel. We need more light. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Happy 1st Birthday to our sweet Hazel!! 💕 I have so much to say about this day and our darling girl, but I'm soaking up every moment of her special day and I'll write more later. ☺️ (I will likely be posting a lot of pics too, especially from this photo shoot by our dear friend @whitneysummersphotography! 😍) To say that I'm overwhelmed with emotion is an understatement. We prayed fiercely for years for a child to fill our empty arms and now we have the most amazing daughter. She is everything and more and all the glory goes to our faithful Father! The love I feel for her has no words or bounds. More to come... until then, lots of snuggles and taking in these precious moments of today with our ONE year old. 💛
