Our Annabelle Faith Le Leonard!

First off, sending a huge THANK YOU to the other members of the Yahoo support group for "Hope families"!!! For these updated photos would not be possible without you! This is truly a blessing and we are so grateful for the special & amazing people who took the time to share with us these photos of our Annabelle. I can't begin to tell you how much in love we are with this little girl...and how we are counting down the days until we can travel and unite with her!

(these are only a couple of the photos that we received today...and some are dating back to when she first arrive at New Hope back in June 2007...when she was only 2 months old)

Isn't she just beautiful...

















(crying tears of joy today and we can't wait until we get our hands on her)
