Happy Gotcha Day Graeme!

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break." ~Chinese legend

A year ago right now it was June 10th and morning time in China and I was meeting my son for the first time. Graeme was so scared and he cried and screamed for his Nanny. It was heartbreaking those first few moments. At the same time, it was beautiful chaos.

Finally, I held my son for the first time. I had waited and waited.

He was so serious those first few days.
Fast forward to now, my wild and silly boy. What a difference a year makes!

I know that our lives have changed so much since those first few days in China. Life took some very unexpected turns this year. I also know that I am forever blessed to have this wee one in my life.

Happy Gotcha Day Graeme Wilder Li!
