Birth Day

We celebrate her birth and rejoice that we get to be in her life. How precious a child's love and the laughter is just icing on the cake! Not only has she captivated our hearts, but it's spilled over to Grandmothers, cousins and others. Just two years ago she was born, but she was planned well in advance by God. Two years ago our paper-work touched China's soil as Hurrican Katrina touched the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We so desperately wanted our wait for her to be minimal, but alas God knew that her paper-work would not be ready until October of the NEXT year.
She was meant to be ours, but we will always remember who's she was for her first birth.

What a "Happy Day!" How excited you were to celebrate one of her many birth-days. We had such a wonderful time with her and all of you and how Kylie still talks and talks about her dear cousins. Wish we were a little closer to enjoy all of the memories together. Glad to see Mike is keeping Mia - what a Mr. Mom and a trooper :-)!
Hope your school year has started off well.
Love to all!
