Happy 7 Years!!

On March 16, 2008, we were in Nanchang China and officially became a family of four. 

 We've been blessed beyond measure with our two daughters. 

This may seem silly, but Emma wore this pink shirt while we were in China and Josie now fits into it.  I can't believe how quickly time has passed!

 Happy 7 year forever family anniversary!

The power of adoption is a beautiful thing.

PS.  Sunday evening, we broke our backyard ice skating record.

 The girls were on our backyard ice rink at 7:40pm  March 15th.  That's two days longer than 2014.  We're officially ready for spring!

What a wonderful, wonderful day to celebrate- probably even more special than a real birthday! I love that you saved that shirt- I'm such a sucker for sentimental things like that. Congrats to your family on such a wonderful day (a day late!).

I didn't know you had a blog! You are one of my favorite IG accounts, so it's so lovely to see more of your photos and I always love adoption stories. My husband and I have always considered adoption and discuss it being something we'd love to eventually do. Thank you for sharing!
