Five years ago today, our family grew in the Civil Affairs office in Nanchang, China, when MJ became our daughter. Here are a few memories from that day...
We usually celebrate in a fairly low-key way, but this year was extremely low-key, even for us. We moved up our Chinese meal to the night before, just because it was too crazy of a night to even think about cooking. The girls started dance, and we had Open House at MJ's school. Because the kids were absolutely out of sorts by the time we left the school, our meal at the Chinese restaurant became take-out eaten at home.
And here is our big girl on her 5th Adoption Day!
We love you, MJ, and cannot imagine our family without you!
