One Year

One year ago our family grew by one. A scared but sassy little girl would in a flash become part of our family. Her first year with us would teach us that love has no limits, that strength can be demonstrated by a baby in a strange place and that smiles and kisses are worth the wait. We love you Sophia June XuCan, from the moment your were born God placed you in our hearts and from there our love for you grew. The moment that we all saw you we experienced so much love and joy that we would never again be the same. We love you Sophie!

So sweet! Only 6 days till we hold our girl! I can't believe it!

We leave on 9/11, get her on 9/16. Watch the blog for our updates :) And thanks for the support and encouragement to get to this point . . .

Just curious, do you have your blog set up to send comments to an email address also? I keep getting a bounce back when I comment here, but it still always posts my comments. It's a "delivery failure" notice from a . . . . nc.us email address. Just wanting to let ya know. . .

I just watched it over at TBG and bawled.

She's so perfect and I'm so happy you all found each other. I just can't believe it's been a year already.

Happy family day to you!
