Hayley and Anthony

Exactly two months ago was our "gotcha" day!  Today we took the kids to a skate park in Sellersville.  While the boys were skateboarding, I was watching Hayley ride her little bike with training wheels.  I couldn't help but think about the last two months, and all the things that have changed in her life.  She has been able to experience so many new things.  She looked so happy and carefree...the way it should be for a two year old little girl. 

So in one of my previous posts I mentioned a little boy that lived in the same orphanage where Hayley lived.  Take a look at these pictures.  The first one is the two of them in the orphanage.  The second one is in China when we met for the first time, and found out that Hayley and Anthony came from the same place.  And the third picture is from tonight, when our families met for dinner.  Can you believe it?!?!  There are millions of orphan children in China, and our children went from Xianyang, Shaanxi, China to living 30 minutes apart in Pennsylvania.  A huge blessing from God that these two children can grow up knowing each other.  

Today was a good day.  For me, a day of reflecting, and a day for me to just say "thank you God for this precious little person that you have brought into our lives"! 


  1. Love it. Glad the get together went well :)

  2. That is wonderful news Jen. She is precious, glad she is smiling and loving her new life.
