On this day, 6 years ago, we met our daughter Lilly for the first time in a crowded office building in Guangzhou China. She was 17 months old. It was a long, exhausting journey to adopt, but worth every tear that was shed.

this is the day we met her. She was 17 months old. April 3, 2007

Now...age 7...
