One Year Anniversary!

Today is an AMAZING day!! 

Nothing out of the ordinary happened today.   

But what happened a year ago today was EXTRAORDINARY!

You see, a year ago today was the day Lily was placed in my arms...both of us crying!

Where has the year gone?  I can hardly believe a year ago today I was standing in the Civil Affairs Office finally holding my promised Lily Rose.  It was the culmination of soooo much waiting.  

And I was finally holding her.

And today?  One year later, my little Lily said to me more times than I can count..."Mama! Hold!"  "Mama! Hold"

And do you know what I did?  That's right...I held her...like I dreamed for so many years that I would.

 Lily one year later!

In Him,


  1. She looks sooo beautiful!!!
    Can't believe how much older she is starting to look!

  2. It was wonderful to meet you in China last year and what a great one it has been! Lily is a precious doll!!!
