Happy One Month Anniversary, Anna!

It has been one month since Anna's adoption. She continues to be a joyful presence in our lives. Anna in Hebrew means grace. An in Chinese means peace and Mei means beautiful. We would both agree that she brings much peace and grace to our family. While Lian is our more introverted, thoughtful, internal processor daughter. Anna seems to be the opposite. She is definitely extroverted, spontaneous, and lets you know what she thinks. Sounds a bit like a mix of their parents :)

Here's a video of Anna laughing, which will give you a brief taste of how joyful she is.

A Recap in Video

Our friends, Phil and Becky Smith, gave us such a surprising and touching gift this evening. They had been following our blog while we were in China and were so moved by Anna and Lian that they wanted to put our pictures to video and song. You just have to watch it to know why we were so overwhelmed by their gift.
