I can't believe it's been 5 years today, since our first daughter was placed in our arms in Nanning, China. She was such a tiny little thing!! At 18 months, she was wearing 6-9 month clothes. She's still a tiny thing, and at 6.5, is just now in 4Ts. She has a huge heart, and, much different from when they handed her to us, she loves her mommie! Those first 8 days in China, she wouldn't even let me hold her - boy was that tough, since I had waited 20 years for my first little girl! She is such a sweet little girl, and is getting ready to start first grade next week. She's smart, funny, and has been an amazing blessing to our family. Here are a few pictures of her in the same outfit she was wearing the day she became our Emma.
