One year ago today a new shared list for the China Waiting Child Program was published and we first locked eyes with this scared and puzzled little girl who would become our daughter.
It's been a year of changes and excitement and growth and lots of love and laughs for each of us and we are so grateful for the diligence of WACAP (our adoption agency) in finding WanYing and walking us through the myriad steps and bureaucracies required to bring us to her, to her fostercare sponsor Laura and her caregivers at the Shangrao Social Welfare Institute
strength and courage and abundant love to pursue WanYing and welcome her home.
It's been such a joy to see those scared and puzzled eyes transform into windows into WanYing's soul that reflect her humor and security and confidence and a whole lot of spunk.
I can't believe that our journey to each other began just one short year ago. It feels like forever - in all the best ways :)
