My heart is in 3

We have 3 daughters!! We have been waiting for this day forever! We really only thought we would be adopting one child, so 2 is a huge surprise! These girls are amazing and it seems like they were born to us. We all clicked from the get go. When we first met, I was expecting them to be shy, maybe even a little resentful towards us, but it was nothing but smiles, hugs and jokes. They, of course, fell in love with Riley. They will definitely be looking up to her, which is great b/c she's a great girl to look up to! Rosie is 6 and she is a sweet, kind of shy, reserved little girl. She only eats pizza, macaroni and spaghetti. She hates all veggies and fruit. She's not going to be to happy when she sees how we eat :) Maggie is 4 and she is loud, hilarious, mischievous and loud! She too, only eats pizza, macaroni and spaghetti but throws in some cereal for breakfast. If food is our only challenge we'll be lucky. We are expecting some turmoil, it's only natural, but we are pretty prepared to handle it. We're just so happy to have these girls join our family. And I have to add that Evan is truly one of a kind. He has already handed his heart over to these girls. Very few men are willing to adopt 1 child, let alone 2 older kids. Now, let's see if I can get these girls to eat healthy!!
