A lot can change in two years......
We have watched a personality emerge that at times seems larger than life.
Our girl shows us every day that she can be very independent and wants to do things for herself.
She has turned into quite the little lady and is definitely a girly girl.
The baby that was placed in my arms went from crawling, to walking, to running, to "I can barely keep up with this child" in no time at all.
All of that baby chub that I so dearly loved has fallen away.....
and a little girl has appeared.
In my opinion, God could not have created a more perfect blend of sugar and spice.
In all that has changed, there is one thing that has remained constant.....
and that is the love we have for this child and the way she touches the hearts of all of those around her.
Two years later and at times I feel like I still need to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming.
Our lives have been richly blessed by the miracle of adoption, not once, but twice!
Happy Forever Family Day Reagan.

I will not have time to post again tomorrow, but have provided a link below for Favorite Photo Friday.
This is a very special weekend..... My friend Marla and her husband Derek are meeting Pat and I in center city Philly.
Marla came to China with me two years ago and getting together in October is starting to become a tradition. In addition to "Reagan Day", their 21st wedding Anniversary is tomorrow and my 40th Birthday is on Saturday. Then on Sunday we will also meet up with my friend Dita and her Darlings, along with my parents, Nick, Sarah, and Reagan for a special brunch. Needless to say we are going to do some major celebrating! In China we celebrated our special days with Snickers bars and red wine that we drank in our hotel room from plastic mugs.
I think we are going to be doing it up in a more grand fashion this weekend:)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.... I sure hope 40 is FABULOUS!!!
