That morning it just happened to be the email that would change our lives forever. It was the first pictures of our little girl. I often had her email me at work because that was the quickest way to respond but the photos she had sent were too big for our server. I frantically called our IT department pleading for them to release the photos so I could see. Unfortunately, they were processed in a first come first serve basis.
I emailed Sue and asked her if she could send them to my hotmail account, which is linked to my phone. I waited and waited for my phone to download the photos...but of course they were too big to view on my phone. Finally I just explained to my co-workers that I needed to run home quickly for just a second to get the email. Luckily, I only live a mile from work!
I sat on the floor in the living room and fired up my laptop and opened the email pictures. My heart was beating so fast! As soon as I saw her face I literally felt like time had stopped. I called Tommy at work - he normally doesn't answer at work because his phone doesn't work in the school but miraculously he answered. I was so speechless I think he thought something was wrong because I was crying. I told him I had gotten pictures of our daughter!
She was amazing at only 6 weeks old. I had no idea at the time how old she was because we hadn't received her medical report. All I knew is that she was perfect and she was ours. Such a great moment that I will never forget.
She came dressed in boy clothes :)
Then she got a cute pink sleeper!
