Happy Forever Family Day!






2 years ago hubby and I were in China. A precious little 15 month old was put in our arms- she took one look at me and thought I was the scariest person in the world. The only other person more scary than me was that big salt and pepper guy taking pictures of us. That day was very traumatic for our darling little Anna Violet LeYi. She cried until we got back to the room and then exhaustion took over and she feel asleep. 

I have a totally different perception of that day. For me it was the day I realized dreams really do come true! How could a couple 49 yrs old and 50 yrs old actually be blessed with a precious treasure from China? A precious little girl that was from that moment on our daughter! It was a down on our knees, thankful to Jesus day!

She is such a blessing to our family! We love our little Anna so much. This little girl was meant to be in our family, she was hand picked by God! We feel so blessed and so grateful to our dear Lord!

Congratulations!! Two precious years with one of the cutest girlies to come out of China!

Your pics are adorable...little Anna looked so frail and afraid. Now she's a little darling, ruling the roost!

Your little one is so beautiful. It makes my heart rejoice to see the change in such a sad child to such a joyful darling. God certainly sets the lonely in families and turns their mourning to joy doesn't He. Praise Him for the blessings!

Anna is so cute. Bryson LOVES her! He keeps talking about her.

I love going back in time and seeing pictures of then and now. Just shows what a lot of love and commitment can do in a child's life!

Love your girls! Okay and you!
