May 1

May 1 will always be a very special day in our family.

Let's go back in the past....

May 1, 2007 after 3 long years of waiting we received the referral of a beautiful 7 month old little girl in Xiushan, China.

She was a dream.come.true. and we were all helplessly head over heels in love.

little did we know that this was just the beginning.

Fast forward 2 years.

The day arrives again.

May 1, 2009.
2 year referral day for AnnaGrace but that was not all...

A new HOPE list comes out with our agency and my Mom looks at it just because. NOT looking for a child. NOT looking at all. Just looking for pleasure.

Pull up the list and she scrolls down to the last number. #46. She pulls the file up. His name is Chang Jian Hui he had Cleft Lip/Palate and was 3.

Exactly what my Mom and Dad had talked about saying IF they ever went back.
So on May 1 a lot happened and LIVES were changed for forever and for the better.
But May 1 was just the beginning.

I came across you post when I googled Xiushan SWI. I'm the proud Mama of TWO Xiushan girls! One we adopted in September 2008 and one we will travel for this summer sometime.

You children are precious and beautiful!
