Flashback Friday


Wow, I remember this day like it was yesterday.

Back in November of 2006, our first night with our little Ladybug. She was so itty-bitty at the time. Her tiny, fragile hands held the bottle close as she rested securely in daddy's lap. She was so unsure at that point, unable to make sense of what had happened to her that day. So many new faces, sounds, and smells. And, although she rested comfortably in the arms of her daddy and I that day, she was still scared and nervous. She did not know the incredible amount of love that we already had for her and planned to give her for the rest of her life. She was (and is) our tiny little treasure, our baby with, "...the wild hair, and the soulful stare." It was this day that we became a family. A day that is very dear to my heart, and will go down as the best birthday I ever celebrated. Thank you little Ladybug for lighting up my life!

Oh, we adopted Lily on my birthday, as well. And then, 4 years later we adopted Yana whose birthday is the same day as mine! So, Aug. 30 is a big day for our family!

Your family is beautiful.

Our most recent addition (Grace, Nov. '08) is also a Guizhou girl.

Blessings,
Sarah
