One Smile Closer: Bella

I met Bella and her mommy, Tonya last year at Mops. Bella was adopted from China in July of 2009. Bella is such a beautiful, happy, and busy two year old girl. She is a constant reminder to me of the miracle of adoption and that our adoption will be worth the wait. Tony and Brian waited for four years for their sweet Bella, and I know they think it was well worth the wait. I am so glad Justin was able to chase little Bella around the park and get these great pictures. Thank you, Tonya, for being such an encouragement to us and for helping us bring our little girl home. I can't wait until our girls can run around the park together!


  1. She is a beautiful girl. We brought our daughter home in 2007 from China after waiting almost 3 years. The wait is so hard..but SO worth every minute!

  2. I can't wait for them to run together too! Adoption is such a crazy journey, but so worth it. It's a miracle and something I wish everyone could experience.
