Gotcha Day Celebration

January 21st marked our 2 year Gotcha Day!
Our home and hearts have been filled with JOY since HG's arrival!!
It has been such a blessing! I cannot even put it into words!
This is the INCREDIBLY, AMAZING Michelle!
God has worked through Michelle to unite us with our daughters!
She is not just the China Coordinator to us, she is part of our family!

Visiting Daddy at work.

If you notice, this is the same outfit she was wearing when we were united.
HG's foster mother loved her so much!
She bought her all new clothes for our special day.
She also bought the clothes in larger sizes, so HG could wear them for a while.
HG has gone from 17lbs. (on Gotcha Day) to 31lbs! She can still wear this outfit!

We told HG we would eat at the restaurant of her choosing.
Believe it or not, she chose "O'Donalds at the Dalleria."
Translation: McDonalds at the Galleria.

While in China, we bought presents to give her on her Special Day.
This year she received a Panda that opens with smaller Pandas inside.
She calls it her "puzzle."

Our Family (minus 1 Chinese Princess)
We received some exciting news about SH.
Our dossier is in the MATCH ROOM in China!!
The INCREDIBLY, AMAZING Michelle called us on January 21st with the news!!
We are HOPEful to be in China mid- March!
