2 year Gotcha Day!



Two years ago today, we were blessed with a bundle of Linzhi love! I remember that day so vividly...I can still feel the cold air hitting my face the day we left for the civil affairs office in Nanjing, China. It was so cold that day but the minute she was placed in my arms, I felt nothing but her. I remember holding her and the smell of her skin was so sweet and her breath had a hint of garlic because they had just taken her to lunch before she came to us. Oh my what a day! As I'm typing this, she is next to me playing with her toys, in her room, in her forever home safe and sound with her forever family. I thank God everyday for the sweet blessing of Linzhi Rose Xiao Li.

What a perfect day it was ;) I love that you remember every detail - so do I; isn't that amazing? I am so glad that God chose you to parent all of your children - but especially Linzhi today!

Hugs,
Sara
