One year together!!

Daddy and his sleepy head boy
It was one year ago today that we finally met our precious little boy!! I can still remember seeing his little navy blue Old Navy hat in the distance as we were waiting for our luggage at the airport. Once our luggage arrived, we walked outside and there he was!! He seemed so much smaller than his pictures and he was the cutest little boy that we had ever seen. We then went back to our hotel room with him, one of his workers and the director of the orphanage. We spent 3 hours with him that afternoon and we shared a mango smoothie. It didn't take long for him to warm up and start smiling at us. He then went back to the orphanage for his final night. The same day we met Rafael was also Brian's birthday so today, one year later, we have LOTS to celebrate. Today Brian turns 40 and our little boy has been with us for one full year. We have so much to be thankful for and we look forward to another amazing year with our son. He has the most amazing smile and a personality to match. We just love him to pieces!!! Happy forever family day Rafael!! Happy Birthday Brian!!

Once Raphael became a part of your family it seems that the time has passed so quickly. I love seeing the joy on all 3 of your smiling faces in the pictures. And Happy 40th birthday to Brian!!
