Lily Wen has been with her Forever Family for FOUR years!

Four years ago today I became a mother in Chongquing, China when I met my daughter for the first time. Words are still not adequate to describe that day. She has brought so much love and joy to our lives. We are so blessed!!! I pulled out our pictures and these are a few of our favorites.

The first time I held my daughter!

Her first Halloween....cutest little pumpkin

I loved this little outfit!

First Birthday

She would still rather play in icing than eat it.

So Sweet

Isn't she beautiful!


Time at the beach

Early on, she had an interest in gymnastics and a natural ability

This summer in how she has changed from our first trip

I can not imagine my life without Lily Wen. I am the happiest and luckiest Mom in the world!!! I am so loved and so blessed.
Lily Wen, We Love You!

What a sweet baby! Isn't amazing how quickly they grow? I keep telling my kids that I'm going to stop feeding them so they'll stop growing. So far no one believes me.

I don't think I realized that Lily Wen was from Chongqing?! What SWI was she from? Our Ethan Kai was from the Chongqing city children's home. What an amazing city! Congrats on 4 years! You have a beautiful family.
