Gotcha Day

Yes - 4 years ago this wonderful girl was given to us - we all say she's a gift beyond compare!! So today is her Gotcha Day and we had to celebrate! Chloe kept asking us all day what this day was and we kept telling her Gotcha Day, but she insisted it was "My Patrick's Day" - what do we know anyway!?!?! All these holidays just run together I guess! So here she is in her glory!!
She begs to hear her story over and over - I love that. And I love to hear her giggle when I tell her she cried and cried ALL that first day - ok the first THREE DAYS - then she just smiles and says, "Mommy, I was telling you in Chinese that I was hungry." Oh - if only we had known!! :)

I know I'm a day or two late, but Happy Gotcha Day. I read the article on the previous post and I think that sums up Caroline's reaction too. She did not warm up to us until the 'magic' day 3. Until then, we were in survival mode trying to keep her from crying anytime we moved her to the other parent's arms. Broke my heart.

Caroline loves to hear her adoption story - and Peter's too!

She's growing up so fast! Before you know it, we will be buying dresses for their proms!

Hope your gotcha day was great. She sounds like she keeps you all on your toes.

She cracks me up!
Can you please ask her what Lily was "saying" to us then??? hehe

Happy Be-lated "Gotcha" Day!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
