Gotcha- 2 Years Ago

Miss Lindy Ann came into our family 2 years ago on December 18, 2007. I sometimes can't believe it has been two years already. She has grown so much in the time she has been with us. As I think back to that day in a cold government office in Hefei China I am remembering the scared little girls that was placed in my arms. This is the day that is called "gotcha day" in the adoption world. She was leagally adopted the next day (Dec 19). My heart just broke for her as she screamed (in Chinese) "NO NO NO"

But by evening she had warmed up a bit to her new mommy. She stopped crying but was very reserved.

This photo was taken on Dec 19 2007, after a night of sleep and a bath.

This is a picture of the girls today
Dec 18 2009.

Lindy's first meal with us. We ate in our hotel room. She ate spaghetti-O's, corn and peaches.

Her meal tonight!
We are so blessed with these girls. I cannot imagine life without them.
Happy Gotcha Day Lindy.
We love you!!
