One Year Ago Today

One year ago yesterday we saw our daughter's face for the first time.


On year ago today we officially accepted her referral.




What a year it's been!



Tomorrow we will be celebrating Chinese New Year (although officially today is the day), only we will be celebrating so much more than that.



Tomorrow we will celebrate the gift of our daughter Suhn. Handpicked for our family, or maybe we were handpicked for her. Either way God's fingerprints have been revealed over and over again throughout our journey and hers.



About a month ago, AH, the foster home where she lived in China, asked us to make a video of Suhn. They were celebrating an anniversary and wanted videos of the children who had passed through their doors. I thought I'd share it with you today as we celebrate Suhn Mikayla Rui.





Happy Chinese New Year!!
