One Year Ago, today....
...half a world away... I became a mom for the second time (and probably last..lol...  jeriendhal and I always talked of having 2 or 3 kids, and with Miss G we're probably done, as she and Thomas can be quite a handful.)

Today was the day I met her in the civil affairs office in Nanjing -- the capital of Jiangsu province.  I wasn't legally considered her mom at that point -- today was the start of the "24 hr harmonious period", we returned the next day to the civil affairs office to finalize the adoption.  Click here for the entry from the travel blog I kept during the trip.

I can't believe its been a year.  Time has flown in one sense...and yet, it seems like this fiesty, sassy, smart little girl has always been a part of our family.


Funny story:  I was doing my exercises on the Wii fit a day or two ago..and doing squats, which of course you have to hunker down low.  Georgia is watching..then swats my backside and says, "You got a big butt."  Grandma (my mom's) curse has been fulfilled "May you have a daughter exactly like you." <- when I was younger I did something similar.. luckily my mom had a good sense of humor and laughed...  as I admit that I did.  LOL!
