Happy Gotcha Day, Emma!!!

Three years ago today, a sweet little baby girl was placed in our arms in the Civil Affairs Office in Nanning, Guangxi Province.  What a wonderful day - a day we had waited for so long, with such anticipation and excitement, just wondering what it would be like to have a little girl in our family.  We were so blessed, when after much back and forth with China, that we were allowed to adopt our precious little Emma Grace SiQi!  What a joy she has been to us, and to our entire family.  She is smart, funny, snuggly, sweet, loving, and so much more!  She is her mommies little "angel pie"!  Tonight, we had orientation at the school where she will go to an all-day preschool this year!  I can't believe she's ready for that, but she is so excited, and says she loves her school!  God placed this special little girl in our family, and we can't wait to see what He has planned for her life!  We know it will be amazing!  Here are pictures from the day we got her, and our gotcha day anniversaries since that first amazing, and wonderful day...
