Happy Lyla Day!

I bet you didn't know there was such a thing as Lyla Day, did you?  Well, there is, and it is an amazing day that everyone should get a chance to celebrate!

One year ago today a little girl walked through the door of our hotel room in Nanchang, Jiangxi and became as our flesh and blood.  Just like that, OURS FOREVER!  Celebrating an event as miraculous as that is something I wish everyone could experience!

I don't even know what to say about all that has gone on in our lives, and her life, in the past year; so much good, so much bad, lots of hard, lots of fun, some we'd like to forget, some that we pray we always remember!

Please re-read my post from one year ago if you have a minute.  It helps remind me of the awesomeness and graciousness of the God who brought Lyla into our family.  To think that we came from that, to where we are today is humbling, to say the least.

Happy Lyla Day, big girl!  You rocked our world in ways that we could never have imagined, and we are so grateful for that day, one year ago, when your sweet, spunky, contagious smile lit up our lives!
