Now dear daughter that you've been with us eight years, it seems only right, to come back to this blog, to impart to you the knowledge of what our time was like when we awoke in China on Sunday, March 9, the day before you joined our family.
The years have flown, three more children joining you, pets departing, a new pet arrived. Friends made, schools attended, new friends made, joy, happiness, hurts, tears, sadness, sickness, travel, more travel, family near and far, friends, love, kisses, and a myriad of other things, adventures have filled these years.
What lies ahead we do not know - but know this, though you may fall, though you may find disappointment, know that our arms are here for you, our shoulders to lean on, to cry on, as long as life endures.
When we are no longer able to fulfill those acts of love toward you, find someone who will love you unreservedly for who you are, who believes in your potential, who will be your best friend, who will give you that sense of family, of belonging.
