One year ago we saw this sweet face in real life for the first time. I wish I was a better photo editor and could get this picture clear. Sadly, I've fooled around with it in a couple of different programs (Microsoft photo editor and Picknic by flickr) and I have not been able to get it as clear as I would like. But even though my picture is fuzzy, my memory of that moment is perfectly clear.
She was so scared, yet brave. She was sweating up a storm from nerves, but was still willing to sit on my lap, eat snacks, and drink the water I brought for her. She would smile, but she looked so nervous. She didn't cry until we headed to the elevator. She saw one of the nannies down the hall, and broke down in tears. It just about broke my heart to see her so sad.
Happy gotchaversary, Cara. We love you so much!
