Three years ago today, a 9 month old baby girl named Yangxi Dong Dong (aka Lia Jade Yangxi) was placed in her Daddy's arms at the Guangdong Civil Affairs Office in Guangdong China. And across the world her Mommy and big sister waited anxiously for the Skype video call so they could meet her.
Well, actually we were asleep until Daddy called us since it was about 4:00 am our time. It was the best wake-up call I have ever received. I was so excited to see those big brown eyes staring at me through the computer. Of course, I was a blubbering mess. And it was such a relief to know that her Daddy finally had her and she was safe.
Happy 3rd Gotcha Day Lia Jade! We love you to pieces!
