China 2010


I can't believe this was only 2 and a half months ago.This is taken at a 2000 yr old temple in Nanjing, Jiangsu China. I love this picture because we had had her for 3 or 4 days and it was one of the first times she let me hold her without a major tiz waz! She turned a corner that day! Now....fastforward a couple months, she is my shadow 24 hrs a day! I am the lucky recipient of 1000 hugs and kisses a day from this child! How was I so lucky to be given this child??? Can't imagine the hole in our family....she truly was the missing piece of the puzzle!

I came across this on our agency"s web site. I honestly forget half my kids were once motherless and truly orphans..once I get them home they are just one of my kids..plain and simple. Reading what this Orphanage worker had to say sent chills up my spine and brought me to tears. No words for how humbled I feel to have been a part of such a miracle...3 times!

Remember, this is the greatest thing that will ever happen in the life of this child. Tell her to go forth on behalf of all her sisters who will never have this chance and change the world."
