Two years ago today, we walked into the Civil Affairs building in Jiangxi, China, and met this precious little girl. Time really does fly, because it feels like yesterday that we were still waiting and hoping for a referral. What a gift Addison has been to all of us. She has touched so many hearts and lives, and I pray that her joy and laughter and love of life has inspired others to consider the possibilities of adoption and to give more orphans the chance to have forever families. I have been so blessed to be able to share our story with many people, and it has been my passion and my joy.
God is so Good, and we praise Him for this life that forever changed ours!
Happy Gotcha Day Addison Grace!
These pictures are the first glimpses we had of our daughter. She was only 5 months old. They are the only pictures I have of Addie before we got her at 13 months old.
There were no smiles on this day from our little XinSi
What a long way we have come................
