Gotcha, Laura!!

June 14, 2005...Laura's Gotcha Day in Nanchang, JiangXi, China.
Could it really be 5 years ago already??
Here's our first glimpse of our sweet girl in the
orphanage director's arms.
I'll never forget them calling out her name
so we could take her...
Ling Guang Yi.

Such a proud big brother!
Boy, have you grown up, Jacob!
Here she is, riding back to the hotel with us.
She always looks so scared in this photo.
Daddy time back at the hotel.

Cuddles from Aunt Leesee...

Feeding you your first bottle.
Hard to believe at 11 months,
this was all you could handle in your mouth.
We laughed at how you'd stick all the solid foods
to the roof of your mouth!
Night-night, sweeties.

The first smile...of so many to come, happy girl.
