5 years ago today my life changed in the most amazing, wonderful way! I was blessed by God with the title my heart had longed to hold for as long as I could remember, ‘Mom!!!’ After waiting (im)patiently for the 3 1/2 years that my file was in China, Deborah called to share the news! I am forever thankful that in the 30 minutes from her initial email that she was preparing to call until the call came, I was able to gather my parents and my ‘mother-in-love’ in one room so that we could get the great news together!
August 21, 2009 ~ Hannah’s Referral Call! (Hannah and I watched this together last night. A huge smile filled her face as she saw and heard our reactions and I once again cried ‘happy tears’ as that amazing day was replayed once again!!)
I still pinch myself often to believe that I am blessed to call this most amazing girl my daughter!!
Hannah, before God created the world He knew that you and I would be Mother and Daughter and I am forever grateful to Him! I love you Xiao Xiao!! xoxoxo
