One year ago…

July 23, 2008

One year ago today my family of three became a family of four. One year ago today we stood in a hotel conference room in the middle of Nanning, China waiting for a nine month old girl named Yi Mei. One year ago today we held in our arms our youngest daughter. One year ago today I became a Mother again.


And now, in just one year, Maya Yi Mei has grown into a beautiful toddler. What a happy year it has been.

    A year, already! Wow, time flies!! She’s such a doll. I know you’re going to love watching her grow up into a beautiful young lady. BTW, I think she wanted a lick of that snowcone, a few days back. LOL

    She is so beautiful! I have a Chinese god-daughter – these little girls are so special.

    I just finished The Wednesday Sisters, and enjoyed it a lot. I agree, I wanted the story to go a bit deeper and on a bit longer. A sequel, perhaps??
