Happy Family Day – 2nd Anniversary

It is hard to believe, but 2 years ago today we were in a hot and humid Civil Affairs office in Nanchang, China finalizing our adoption of The Princess.  It is hard to believe that it has been only 2 years, because it seems as though The Princess has always been a part of this family.

Here is the photo that started our journey to The Princess:

Look at those cheeks!  I took one look at that precious little face and felt like she was staring straight into my soul.  I just wanted to kiss those sweet cheeks!

This was her arrival to our hotel room.  We had just flown into Nanchang (Sunday) and I thought we would meet her on Monday.  As we were leaving the airport, our guide (Mary) informed us we be meeting The Princess in a few hours.  Talk about panic mode!  I thought we would have time to get her things together, instead I had a few minutes to rifle through our luggage and find a few things for her.

Happy 2 years! We also traveled to Nanchang for Josie. Did you stay at the Gloria Hotel? It looks familiar.
