New pictures of Lydia!

Lydia playing her drums

She wanted her China doll to be involved so......

Here..her China doll is singing her heart out! Lydia kept on telling her doll, "Good job..good job".

Getting into it.

"I love music!"

The next American Idol....

Lydia is checking out the new Babies-R-Us flyer. She loves looking at babies.
We recently had our LAST Post Placement visit required by China. Wow! It was such an encouraging visit. We can't believe it has been almost a year since we first held Lydia. What an amazing year it has been. Lydia has grown leaps and bounds. She is currently just shy over 3 feet tall, wearing a size 8 shoe (!!) and her developmental (both motor and language) skills are just blooming. Lydia is turning into such a sweet young lady. She is very nurturing. She is just SO perfect for our family.
God is amazing......

One year ago today...

Referral picture of our little one. First picture we saw of her. First time we laid our eyes on her.

Hugs with hubby after the "call".

Receiving information about Lydia for the first time.

One year ago today, we received our referral of Zhu Li Ying (Chinese name). Now Lydia Zhu Li Super. I can't believe that it has been a year since we first laid our eyes on her. I can remember like it was yesterday. So much has happened since that day. It's kinda like a blur. Then 8 weeks later, we traveled to meet her. Wow!

She has changed so much...God has been so merciful and gracious to us.

If you would like the details of that call..please go to my blog post one year ago today.
