3 years

It is hard to believe but yesterday was our 3 year anniversary or as Kristi calls it referral-a-versary of getting the call for Abby Grace. 3 years ago yesterday we saw the scared little face for the first time and immediately fell totally in love. It is amazing to look back on those pictures and look at pictures from recently and even recognize her as the same little scared girl living on the other side of the world without the love of a family.
Then: waiting on us to come bring her home



2010 thriving with the love of her family:





We LOVE you baby girl to the moon and back!! We are so thankful to HIM for blessing our lives by bringing us you as our daughter and little sister.

Congratulations!!! So wonderful to see Julianne's nanny in this picture since I haven't seen too many with her in it.

What a difference in her countenance from that first picture to the last one! The love of a family looks so good on her! Happy Referral-a-versary!

And I think I just totally made a connection here, is that Hudson with her in the top picture?

And we love you to AG.....SOOOO grateful you and Hudson didn't have to leave each other without going home to your families. We must get you two together soon!!!

What a doll! This week marks 7 years ago that I received my referral for my sweet little one. Great time of the year, isn't it?

I still can't believe it has been 3years! I am overwhelmed at how God had weaved these children into our families. Our travel group will always hold a special place in my heart. A reunion is a must~

Denise said...

Yes, Kristi that is Abby Grace and Hudson. They were the best of friend and cribmates in China. Sharon and I were so happy that neither one of them got left behind without the other.
