The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

We've had so much to be thankful for over the past year. It was around this time last year that we saw the face of our little girl for the first time. I didn't want to get my hopes up, but I KNEW deep in my heart that I was looking at our daughter. Not long before Thanksgiving arrived, we finally received word from our adoption agency that we were approved to be Keira's parents. It seems so long ago and here we are...another Thanksgiving has come and gone and it's hard to believe that our funny little monkey has been with us for several months now.

We spent Thanksgiving up in LA with Auntie Kat, Uncle Matt and Grandma (Nana) Curry. This was Dan's mom's first time getting to meet Keira and they got along great. Dan says it's because they are the same height lol.

She's been staying with us for about a week getting to know Keira before heading off to Arizona to spend some time with Fallon and Aria, Keira's cousins. Here are some pictures of us all spending a nice relaxing day at Oceanside Harbor.

I'm normally one of those weirdos that HAVE to have my Christmas tree and lights up HOURS after Thanksgiving is over, but I at least waited a day or two this year! Not for any other reason except for laziness of course. I put it up while Keira was taking a nap and boy was she surprised when she woke up and saw this thing in her living room!

Here are Keira and baby inspecting the weird thing in her house.

Dan and Nana were helping Keira hang an ornament. It was a mermaid dressed in black that Auntie Bee sent a while back.
Just a little something funny that I wanted to include. For Chloe Cuizon's birthday party, Keira won the costume contest. Now, granted, it was by default since she was the only kid left by the time the prizes were awarded, but HEY! We'll take it! lol
The prize was a Halloween Mr. Potato Head! Now, Keira didn't really know what to do with it, so Daddy showed her how you can take the body parts off and put them back in. After that, you can't take it away from her! She loves her "hat" as she calls it and as you can see from the pictures below, They just have to see them for yourselves! :)

Masterpiece number 2. It can't be too nice having your nose that close to your butt, but hey, what can ya do?
