A visit with Zoe’s birth mom and her birth family

IMG_5458

We celebrated Christmas this past weekend with Zoe’s birthmom, her birthmom’s parents, and her birthmom’s brothers.  We got together at our house and visited.  They got to see how much Zoe has grown – it really is amazing how much she’s grown since they saw her for her birthday.

We talked and had lunch together.  Zoe showed her birthmom all of the ornaments on her little tree and told her about them.  Her birthmom and her birthgrandma made her the shadowbox with her name in the picture below.  It’s so beautiful – it’s so special and such a wonderful keepsake for Zoe.    IMG_5459-1

Zoe got to be silly – she loved playing and pulling out all her toys.  She loved chasing after one of her birth uncles, too.  It was such a nice visit…I’m so glad that they were able to come and get together.  I love that Zoe gets to see her birth family and spend time with them.  We’re really grateful that they are a part of our lives.

That's sweet. My daughter's birth mother is sending her a Christmas gift, too. Cannot wait to see what it is especially since this is our first Christmas. Such a wonderful thing for our girls.
