5 years ago today...

I met Xiu Wen in a civil affairs office on the other side of the world. I had dreamt of her and prayed for her and finally, I was in the same room with her. I still can not describe how I felt when I held her for the first time. My Lillian Christine Wen was in my arms. Amazing!

We have celebrated Lily Wen's fifth gotcha day all day today and I do have pictures. This Mom is simply too tired to post them tonight. So it gives you something to look forward to later in the week.

I go to sleep smiling for I am the one Blessed as I was the one chosen to be her Mom. It still gives me chills. I have this beautiful, creative, energetic, vivacious daughter. I am hers and she is mine. Life just doesn't get any sweeter!
