Worth the Wait

Back in 2010, after 2 1/2 years of waiting, 
I opened my email and saw this little dumpling.

Her name was Ying Ying and we couldn't wait to bring her home.

There was a glitch ( surprise, surprise) and it took several extra months before she joined our family.

It didn't take her long to fit right in

Even though there were times of sadness as she grieved for all she had lost.

She's bright, independent, bossy, busy, imaginative, loves her friends and cousins,

Loves to read, play dress up, play games, ride bike, play soccer,

We love her like crazy!

We are so glad you are a part of our family.
We are so blessed.


  1. What a cutie! I know your son will also be worth the wait.

  2. It hardly seems like six years ago that we were all together at the hotel in Guangzhou! Kaitlyn has really grown up into a lovely young lady. Can't wait to see your newest addition!

  3. I'm so glad that through blogs we are able to catch a glimpse of each other's kids as they grow. It is so beautiful to see how they blossom in families. :)

  4. She is so darn cute!! I have been feeling very blessed by the gift of adoption. Can't wait to see your little boy in your arms.

    1. Thank you, Amy! I love seeing the pictures of your girls (and boys!) and how well they are doing. :)
