Referral Announcement: 1 Year Later

Last night, David, Eva Monet, and I went out to celebrate.

Thursday, September 29th marked our 1 year anniversary since receiving a phone call that we had been matched with a little girl from Jiangxi Province, China.  Her name?  Bo, Jiawan.   She was 9 1/2  months old.

How surreal it felt to finally hear her name, to learn a few basic facts, and to know that after so many years of waiting, we were finally at this moment!

Love pooled in my heart as if to signal that it was finally safe to swim here.  So many years of wading in the 'shallow end', waiting with great hope that 'Our Time' was coming...

A year ago, we had no idea just how much love would flood our hearts and home.  Who knew all that we would experience since the first time we saw those deep brown eyes and jet black hair. Talk about life changing!  What an amazing year!

  1. Yay! It's so awesome to look back and remember the little altars of gratitude along the way. God has done great things in you, for you, and through you. Can't wait to see what the coming years will hold! Hug her little sweet self for me :)
