The eyes are the window to the soul... man! This little soul looks so eager to enjoy life, her new family and all the adventures that this world has to offer her. Goodness she is such a beautiful little thing, and I am so so soooo very happy for the three of you!

MAN! What a long wait, up to now, and in the next couple months -alllllmost worse than my IVF attemptS? I wonder ;)

Enjoy the time you have together as a couple, an I know this little bundle will consume your hearts, mind, body and your soul!!

Beautiful Blessings !

BEAUTIFUL!!! Absolutely adorable! Oh and I love the name you picked out for her. The next few months will be pure bliss as you prepare for her homecoming, i.e. getting all of the paperwork done, her room ready, lots of precious outfits to buy. Enjoy! Claire will be here before you know it. I am soooo happy for you:-)
