Letter from our Daughter

Last week, when we received the new pictures of our 13 year old daughter, we also received a letter from her.  I thought I would share it so you can see what a sweet heart she has.  We can't wait to meet her in person, on December 20!!

Dear Baba and Mama,

Ni hao! How are you? When I started to write this letter, I cannot tell you how excited I am. I always wanting a home of my own and Baba Mama , brothers and sisters of my own. I am always waiting for the dream come true. Now I find my direction, I got my hope. I really want to appreciate you with the good studying surroundings and family which you will give me.

When I got your gifts, I felt that I really met an angel in my life. I got your pictures. I saw my two lovely sisters. I think I will be as happy and lucky as they are now. I read your letter. It shows so much cares and loves to me. Thank you for your loving me so much.

I am in grade 8.I love physics maths and Chinese. I also love writing. I hope to continue my study in USA.I hope I still can study with my Taekwondo.

I love sky blue and dark and white color.

You are loving heart people. I believe that it is the fate that we find each other. I believe we will have a happy life together. I think I am going to love you with my love heart. Just like how much you love me.
Happiness and lucky find me. I will hold it till I meet you.

My dream will come true very soon..I feel so happy to have a such sweet family.

Thank you for bring me such a beautiful love and sweet and warmly home to me. I am really happy !

Thank you! I will use my heart to love everyone of you in our family!

Your daughter Liyang

I am floored by the love in this letter! Would you mind if I share this as an encouragement to others who are considering adopting an older child? If you'd rather me not share, I completely understand!

What a sweet letter! I know that melted your heart. I have misplaced your email address- I was wondering if there was any way that I might be able to mail you a very small package to deliver to our daughter when you go to Qingdao. I know packing is so hard so I completely understand if you can't. Please try to remember everything you can about your stay in the province! I need to copy you! Love, Kim

Oh my word. What a beautiful letter. What a treasure - someday she'll be able to read it to herself and marvel at the true experience of love that she only dreamed of at the time she wrote it. You guys are going to be so good for each other!!!!! Congrats.
