An Update and the Beach

First off I just want to say that I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately. I am going to try really hard to post a lot more often! August has been a very busy month so far, during this month I have finished high school (home schooled and the program ran through Aug.), gone on vacation to Wisconsin, stayed with family, had family stay with us, and this past week, started college! It's been kinda crazy busy so that I barely had time to check my email, let alone get a post up on this blog. But, as I said earlier, I am going to try really hard to be posting more, so be sure to check back more often for updates!
Sarah Lu has had a great summer. She just loves the warm weather and the fact that she gets to wear "dresses with no sleeves" most days! Some of her favorite things to do are going to the park and swimming, both of which she has been able to do a lot of this summer!Playing with a little friendNote: Although it looks as if Sarah is in deep water, she is not. She is laying down in the water and can stand up in it with the water still under her waist.

2 Years Ago

I can hardly believe that it was two years ago that our LOI (Letter of Intent) was sent off to China for Sarah. Thinking back to that day, it does not seem that long ago. I remember just days before being on the beach of one of the great lakes and having our agency call on the cell phone. My parents were standing over by a tree in the shade and we were all in the water. When the call was over, my mom came running towards us and it was just amazing! The sweet little baby girl that we had loved through pictures was ours! It doesn't seem like it has been two years since that day. Thinking back to that day, it is hard to think that Sarah wasn't there with us because it just feels like she always has been there, with us.
