Well you didn't quite pick the market top to start your ROTHs but you came close. So what? You've had the opportunity to buy as prices declined and presumably have many years to go before withdrawing the money. Keep contributing and you'll be very happy when retirement time comes.

BTW, I did something similar. I started contributing to my 401k in 1973 and watched it shrink for a couple years. I retired at age 54. See, slow and steady does work.
