One year later
Lydia woke up EARLY this morning. Perhaps she knew it was a special day, and she wanted to get an early start. One year ago on August 6th, we met for the first time. Our guide, Xixi told us, "You picked the baby, the baby didn't pick you," and gently let us know that our babies might not be very excited about meeting us. Considering the enormity of the situation, I think we all handled it fairly well. It's one year later, and while the outfit she was wearing then fits better now, the biggest improvement is the smile. How blessed am I? Very, very blessed, and oh so very, very grateful for all that God has done for me.
Loving my squeaky shoes. They didn't fall off a single time today.
