One Year Ago!

It's been one year since I held my newest babies for the first time!
If you have nothing else to do and want to re-live the journey, you can start at this post and hit "Newer Post" at the bottom of each one to get the next chronological post from China. Cuz I'm sure you have nothing else to do :)
Anyway, one year ago, immediately following Kenzie's 8th grade graduation, we headed to the airport to catch a wink before starting what would turn out to be a journey like no other. We missed flights and lost luggage...but I'm over that. The most stressful moments were when I read the news of the Joplin tornado, realizing that Clayton and the kids were traveling right through there at the same time! We finally learned that my family was fine, but I will always remember the victims of that horrible day.
I don't know what I would have done without my brave travel companions, Kenzie...

...and Sheri! They were amazing!

First I met Kennah. Hmmm, not sure.

Oh, she's that person. Mama!

And just as we were getting to know each other, our guide yelled, "Oh, another one!" Kasidi was thrilled to meet me, not so much.
I love this picture! After crying for so long, she looked at me as if she might be able to trust me.

And then dumplings in 105 degree temp.

I seriously can't believe it's been a year! These Treasures are amazing, and I'm so blessed to be their mama!

Time flies. Weeks turn to months. Months turn to years. We wonder where time went. Hopefully, covered with miles of smiles, loads of laughter. Blessed we are by our Father above.
