Some things about Annie:
You can find her in a blue, hand-me-down, two sizes too big Cinderella dress every day, all day. The other princess dresses are "too scratchy" she says. I have had to set the timer recently since both girls want to wear it. Maybe Santa will help take some pressure off…...
She loves, loves to play with Mei Mei and waits patiently until she finishes school. They love to play baby and go on pretend trips together. She will tell Mei Mei that she is her best friend-it's so sweet!
There is not a day that goes by that she doesn't color.
She loves to help me cook.
The girl is soooo flexible. She loves when Daddy teaches her gymnastics!
She loves to go outside-no matter the temp!
She loves Cinderella-the movie and dancing to the music.
She loves to hold hands when we pray at dinner and is the one who initiates it.

She likes to bless me at night while making the sign of the cross on my head.
She is a prayer warrior and remembers to pray for people when I forget.
She just learned "O Come, O come Emmanuel" this Advent and loves to
She loves to see all her family at New Day on Facebook or skyping. She often prays for them!
She has red, shiny shoes that she loves to wear.
She loves to put on "Chopstick"-Lipstick.

She loves to chomp her gum!
When I think back to all the fears that we had during this adoption journey, I am so glad that we did not let them paralyze us. What we would have missed!!!! If you are thinking about adoption, make that first step! Just trust God…..His plans are so much more and so much better than we could ever, ever think of or plan on our own!! Not always easy, but fuller and more joyful in so many ways! We have been blessed!!
