September 2008
  • a little girl was being cared for in a Chinese orphanage
  • funds were being raised for a life changing surgery
  • we were in the midst of our adoption homestudy
September 2009
  • a little girl had traveled 1/2 way around the world
  • we were blessed with the greatest gift imaginable
September 2010
  • a little girl had been a major part of a family for just over a year
