Two Year Anniversary

Two years ago today:

All the waiting was over.


And we began the task of raising a son.


It's the greatest job we've ever had. Our boy knows his name, "Abe. No, not Abe. Abe Rooney."

Two years ago we were in the wee stages of our adoption and I loved reading your blog (still do) and seeing Abe (still do). I would direct all my friends to your blog to see one of the cutest babies I'd ever seen. Congrats on two years Rooney family!

He sure is special. I would like a high five.

Oh those pictures make me cry!! And my goodness - he's such a boy now! No more Abey Baby. He's a big boy. (But I'll always think of him as Abey Baby :)

I love the video. He is such a cutie pie. What an amazing thing that it has been two years...that blows my mind. He was such a little squirt and now he is a big boy that knows his last name. Unreal :)

Staci said...

I'll never forget those adorable photos of sweet baby Abe sunbathing in the nude at the orphanage. His curls, his grin...I fell in love, too!

Happy Anniversary, Rooney family.

I was looking at the children in need of sponsors and I saw this little boy.
