Happy Birthday Little One

It is hard to believe that the little one is now in double digits. It was just yesterday that we were waiting to travel to China to get her.  She has come so far in the last 4 years of new experiences. Birthdays have been one of them.  We do not believe she has even known what a birthday was before she was in our family.  Her first one with us was a little hard to explain, but here we are almost 4 years later, and she has fully embraced what it is.  She knows when all of our birthdays are, and she especially looks forward to planning hers out.

This year was a big one – turning 10.  She planned out what all she wanted to do for her birthday. She wanted waffles with fruit, her and her sisters to put on a My Little Pony show, cake pops, dumplings and spicy noodles. Her birthday was originally on a crazy busy day, but thanks to the Lord and some bad weather – we were able to make it all work out.  We had a day of celebrating her. It was fun watching her truly embrace her birthday and enjoy unwrapping her presents.
