Papa's 80th.

At the beginning of Feb I was blessed to be able to go and celebrate my Grandfather's 80th birthday in St. Louis.

My papa has always been a sort of hero in my life. My memories of him are nothing but positive. I remember how much he has always loved me and although he isn't perfect, when we would visit him he gave us his time and his ear.

This past visit was no different. I have been so thankful to get closer to him as a result of our adoption and I am so proud of all he has done to help bring home close to 8,000 children to their forever families through his agency Children's Hope International.

I love you Papa, thank you for being you! Hope you enjoy the slide show.
