Woo hoo!!! Pictures!!!! I've been stalking your blog impatiently waiting. I'm just so thrilled to finally see Sophia's precious little face. Oh my goodness. She's lovely. I'm so happy for you, Kimberely!!

Truly Blessed said...

Amazing, wonderful -- finally!!!

To look at these photos, you'd think Sophia had already been with you forever, not just for a couple of days. She's just perfect!

She also looks tinier than she did in the photos -- is that true? Looks like you might be needing some shoes back? : )

Congratulations, my friend. Your girl was worth every second of the wait. I'm so happy that she's with you at last!

Truly Blessed said...

Oooh...I just noticed the piggies! I'm so glad they didn't give her a "meet your new family" haircut!

Darling, simply darling!

Much Ado said...

I am so glad I am sitting at my home computer looking at these and not somewhere public because the tears are streaming down my face. Especially that second photo, you belong together. Thanks so much for posting these, Sophia is just PRECIOUS!!! :)

Congratulations...got to your blog thru Kelly's. I love her middle name; that's mine (Sarah Jane)! She is beautiful and looks so happy and relaxed already. So pretty!! Thanks for letting me peak in...we're hoping to travel late summer for our newest daughter who just turned 7. Love seeing families be created! Best of luck. -- Sarah

Oh, Kimberley,
Words cannot express how over joyed I am for all of you.... to see your precious, oh, so beautiful daughter in the arms of her family is priceless.... The Lord has answered our prayers.... Sophia Jane is home at last in her Mommy's arms. She is so beautiful and the joy in her sweet smile... simply radiant. Thank You Jesus for answering our prayers.
The picture of her in your arms is one of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen.... the love that is overflowing from you for your beloved daughter stirs your heart to the very core.
God bless you precious family.
Love you

Simply breathtaking to see your dream come true and your family complete......sigh.

Faith, Hope, and Love said...

Kimberley, I remember reaching my arms up to God in faith and thanking Him for sending your daughter to you...even before you saw her little red shoes. Remember that icon of the little balloon of hope that said "Don't let go". You never did let go...and your reward is now in your arms!!! This is such an answered prayer and my heart overflows with happiness for you and your family!!!

Sophia Jane is absolutely beautiful in your arms! She looks so much happier than the orphanage pics.

Enjoy your miracle!

Love you!
Robin
