7 Years ago, Laura, you changed our lives forever.
You opened our hearts to China,
to children with special needs,
to the plight of the orphan,
to medical terms we had never heard,
to a life surrendered to God,
because there was no way we were going to
care for you in our own strength.
You have brought our family so much joy and unconditional love.
You are an amazing little girl, and I'm so happy you will be with us forever.
I can't imagine spending our lives without your contagious smile, belly laughs, and sassy little attitude!
Gotcha Day in Daddy's arms, 6/14/05
Napping by the pool
First bath with Mama in China
Playing with Mama, Aunt Leesee, and new friend, Abby.
Enjoying my favorite thing...water...with Daddy in Branson, MO.
Your smile just lights up the room. It's impossible not to smile back!
Laura and her current friend, Suki. You have even learned to love doggy kisses!
We love you, YiYi. Happy Gotcha Day!
