Three years ago today, we rode on a small bus...on our way to meet you for the very first time. I will never forget that day...the moments of anticipation as we were on our way to finally be able to see you in person! Mommy was so excited and nervous at the same time. Ba Ba was nervous and on the quiet side. Would you like us? Would you be terrified? How big were you? You had just underwent open heart surgery, would you be feeling well? Oh, the excitement and anticipation.......
And then all of a sudden....there you were! And our hearts would be changed from that day on....with a love for you that we would not have been able to imagine!
They had you dressed in 4 layers and you were soooo hot! Bless your heart! Today, I pulled out your box of clothes from Gotcha Day and showed them all to you. They brought back so many memories. You told me you did not like the way they smelled. Mommy never washed them, so the smell would be the same and I guess the smell of your SWI may have brought back some not so nice memories...because you told me to put them away because you "do not want to smell them anymore"!
God blessed us with the sweetest little girl from all of China......how did we ever get so lucky and how did God see us as so deserving as to bless us with the gift of YOU! Your sweet face 3 years ago.......
And your sweet face now......
You dressed in your China princess clothes 3 years ago.......
Thank-you for bringing such joy and happiness into our lives. We love you forever and we love you all the way to the moon.......AND BACK! : )
Happy Gotcha Day to our friends...the Geer family and to Vicki and her family....whose 4 ladybug princesses will soon be five!!!!!
I will be away from the computer this week....so I will catch up with you all when I return. Have a wonderful week!
