Happy 2 year adoption day, baby girl!!!

One of our referral photos, our baby girl from Guangdong, China!

One of the updated photos we received while waiting the 3-4 months before we could travel.

Gotcha day! November 5, 2007. Sweet sleeping baby girl, she didn't wake up even through all the excitement!

And here she is today! After 2 years, she has changed so much! She is sweet, spicy, and everything in between! She loves to be the center of attention, and told me today, "I want you to call me honey." She says what she feels, and isn't afraid to speak her mind! I can describe her as happy, outgoing, expressive, enthusiastic, and most of all, very, very bouncy (literally!!!).

We love ya, L! You have brought a lot of energy, excitement, and spice to our lives! Thanks for a wonderful 2 are a blessing, and we are honored to have you as our daughter!
