A year ago today…

A year ago today, we received a long awaited call and email from our adoption agency. I was not expecting the call and it was the best surprise ever!!! The call came during the day with Dragon’s basic information and the email included her photo. I can’t believe that I was able to suppress myself, but somehow I managed to wait for the kids to come home from school and Hubby from work. We all gathered around the computer monitor in the kitchen and open up the attachment…

Our little six month old princess. All bundled up, despite being located in Southern China. 6 1/2 years of waiting and there she was. It was finally real!

Today, Dragon is 18 months (22 pounds and 31 inches) and is the center of our family. The wait, although not pleasant at all, was worth it for her!!!!
