2015. What a Year!
I started writing for No Hands But Ours with some of the kindest people who love Jesus and are passionate about adoption.
In January, Miss Lydia finished seeing one of the best and nicest physicians I have ever met in my life. When he placed the stethoscope on her chest, Lydia said, “You gonna take dat stethoscope and wisten to my boobies?” He told me the fact that she can say stethoscope at two years old means she’s going to be a physician. I am so thankful Lydia has access to excellent medical care in the US.
It was like seeing sisters reunited.
We spent a lot of time at her favorite creek, in princess dresses.
Lydia learned to SWIM!
We sent a birthday party to China for Barrett FanFan.
Lydia passed her ISR Winter Clothes test for swim lessons.
Bryson worked hard to finish our documentary, The Making of a Family. It currently has 13,000 views on YouTube. Insane.
We spent lots of time with some of our favorite people.
Lydia started preschool. It is unlikely she would’ve been allowed to go to school in China, due to her special need. I was overwhelmed with the fact that my incredibly bright daughter gets to go to school.
We went to Atlanta and spent some time with precious friends.
Lydia rode on her first roller coaster and loved it.
We took lots of lovely fall walks.
We went trick or treating with Stella.
Lydia and I went to Shriner’s to see her amazing ortho hand specialist, Dr. Goldfarb. He will do surgery on her lucky fin sometime in 2016.
We took Lydia back to China…
we became a family of four…
and journeyed safely home.
The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
We look forward to sharing more memories with you in 2016.
