One Year Ago Today

It was one year ago today, February 13, 2007, that we first saw our daughter, Ellie Tian's face. She was just a baby in the photos we saw...7 months old, in fact, although she was at that point already 18 months old. We would then wait until July 2007 to see any updated, more recent photos. She was such a beautiful baby! It is amazing to think back over this past year, and all the events leading up to Ellie joining our family. She truly has been in our hearts since this day last year, and then the agency confirmed that she would be ours the next day, Valentine's Day.

And then...God sovereignly placed her in our arms on September 2, 2007.She is such a feisty, spicy girl, who feels everything, both joy and anger, with a passion that belies her 2.5 years. Her smile is as big as the ocean and her hugs are as tight as can be. We are so blessed, and I am so thankful for my daughter, Tian Elaine Angela.
