I love Tax Day.

Here is Why:

Two years ago yesterday (Tax Day),
I met Dustin and Andrea for the first time EVERR.

We went to cafe rio yesterday to Celebrate.
I can't BELIEVE how big Avery is getting.

When I got there and was walking in,
Andrea and Avery were walking in too and Andrea stopped and said
"Avery who is that?"
and right away Avery replied
"Nanee"

I LOVE that Avery knows who I am.
I LOVE that she can say my name
(she is even getting better. she sometimes says Anee)

She is talking SOOO much now
and
she can say "Ciao" when you tell her goodbye.
It's the cutest thing ever!


I am so so grateful to Dustin and Andrea.
They are the reason that Avery knows who I am.

One of the biggest fears I had after placement was that Avery would never remember who I was.
That everytime I would see her,
I would just be a stranger to her.

But that's not how it is at all.
I LOVE Dustin and Andrea for that.
They haven't ever let me down. 

I am so grateful for them
and 
I am so grateful that they were put in my life. 
Yesterday was a great visit
it reminded me of the Blessings I have
and
it reminded me of the wonderful people that are Avery's parents.

and that is why I love Tax Day.

That is so great. Kayla can also say her Birth Mother's name and recognize her in pictures and even remember seeing her when baby brother was born. It makes me heart melt. Avery is a doll! Happy 2 years!
