We Have Ivy!

She is amazing!

She cried very quietly for about 10 seconds and has been stoic and observant since. She is very scared but so brave! She is cuddly and wants to be in my arms always. She is so precious! I am still working on getting her layers of clothing off, she wants no part of it. I continue to pray that she will know the depth of my love for her. This journey has been such a sweet reminder to me that God is in the details and JOY comes in the morning.
