This past weekend, we celebrated a momentous occasion in our family – – –
Gracie’s 10th Anniversary
Ten years ago, on October 23, 2000, Brian and I entered the complex at the Bac Ninh Nurturing Center in Bac Ninh, Vietnam, and met our 2nd daughter for the very first time. We held that little 4 month old baby in our arms, and we went through the official ceremony to make her our own (even though God had already done that in our hearts long before).
I cannot imagine our lives without Gracie in them. She brings a lot of joy to our home. She’s always making beautiful music for us to enjoy – both on the piano and the violin. She loves creating things with her hands – whether it be drawing things or working on the knitting loom to create hats and scarves.
When I returned to Vietnam in 2006 to adopt Ian, I brought back 5 Ao Dais for Gracie (traditional Vietnamese outfits). I seriously thought they would last her into adulthood. NOT! The one she is wearing in the picture above is the largest one I purchased! She loves them, so I need to make some connections to get her some new ones. 🙂
Anyway – – –
Happy Anniversary, Gracie!
WE LOVE YOU!
