“Life is not measure by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away”
Today is our 3 year referral anniversary. It was the day we first saw this beautiful face!
In some ways it feels like it was so long ago, but in others, it feels like yesterday. I remember that day so vividly.
We knew we were getting the call as news had arrived from our friends in Europe very early that morning.
We had been waiting over 4 years for this day and we were more than ready to see our daughter.
When we opened our email to see the precious face of Chen Wen Yi, it was truly love at first sight.
All of the pain and frustration that we endured during the wait instantly washed away and was replaced by pure joy.
Over the last 3 years, our baby girl has done a lot of growing up.
The “baby’ in her has noticeably disappeared, but glimpses of those early days still remain.
Like the furrowed brow and her beloved two fingers:)
I never get tired of sharing her story….
I found myself in a situation the other day where someone asked me about her adoption.
As I stood there talking, I could feel myself reliving every single moment.
We are blessed beyond measure by this little girl and we can’t imagine life without her.
She is the perfect mix of Sugar and Spice and everything Nice:)
We will celebrate this special day and then bright and early tomorrow morning we are heading to the beach!
The excitement level is through the roof!!
I will try to post while we are away, but I will definitely be documenting our trip on Instagram,
so you might want to follow along there for the daily does of Cape Cod fun.
Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Referral Day to all of our friends that share this anniversary with us!
