I love remembering this day. 5 years ago in Hefei China we got handed a crazy, inquisitive, tiny, weathered, scared, squeaky (didn't talk), sneaky and beautiful little girl.
It wasn't easy but I would choose to do it all over again and again for her, for us.
She was itty bitty. When we got home from China I bought her 5t clothes at almost 10 years old.
Her siblings were so excited to finally have her.
She would sneak out of bed and hunt down any phone or kindle she could get her hands on.
These are some happy parents . . . so so happy!
Now she has about 25 stuffed panda's on her bed
Is gorgeous, kind, compassionate, loving, smart, cello playing, singing and the best teenage daughter I could have ever asked for.
Except for when she is giving me heart attacks for speeding so fast in her chair or doing some other dare devil act.
