Five years ago yesterday we got our sweet little girl!!
After having breakfast at the hotel, we headed to the Civil Affairs Office with the rest of our group. We were seated at a large table where we waited for what seemed like a long time (it really wasn’t that long, it just seemed long because I was excited). Soon the orphanage workers started bringing the babies in. Then it was our turn. The orphanage director brought in a beautiful baby girl in an orange sweat suit with thick black hair. Mom and I started crying because we were so happy.
On the way home, Meiling fell asleep on Mom, clutching Mom’s sweater. She was so sweet!
I love you, baby girl! I’m so thankful that God blessed our family with you!
Right after they gave her to us
