we got the best phone call! It was our adoption agency calling to tell us we had a baby girl in South Korea! They emailed this picture to us and I stared at it everyday, praying for her and longing for the day when I would get to see her face to face.
I'm so grateful for this little girl. She is my precious gift from heaven.
Six years ago we brought her home from South Korea and she met her brother and sisters for the first time. You can see the pictures here.
Each year we celebrate by eating Asian food and taking her to the Korean market to pick out a few things. Last year we had this pink Asian party. This year we are going to pick up some food at our favorite Asian restaurant and go to the park for a picnic. It is hard to believe how fast the years are flying by!
March 24 will always be a special day for our family. We got the most exciting phone call on that day six years ago! A social worker from Holt called to tell us we had a little girl in South Korea! She said she would email a picture so we could see what our daughter looked like. I fell so in love when this precious photo popped up on my computer screen.
we got the best phone call ever! We found out we had a baby girl in South Korea! Our social worker from Holt emailed us this picture of our darling baby and we fell in love at 1st sight.
When we went to Korea to bring Lily home we spent a lot of time shopping at the outdoor markets. We bought eighteen gifts so we could give her a gift from Korea for each of her birthdays until she turns eighteen. We had so much fun picking out her gifts! This year we gave her this little English/Korean book.
It has been four years since we found out we had a little girl in South Korea! I remember anxiously waiting for our adoption agency to send us a picture of her. When I opened the email, this is the picture that popped up on my screen! I cried tears of joy and fell so in love! I hung the picture in our living room and stared at it everyday, thanking God for her and longing for the day I would be able to hold her in my arms.

She runs to the door and gives him xox’s when he gets home from work...she insists he is the one that brushes her teeth and carries her to bed each night...and she cries when he goes to town without her.
It wasn’t always this way. When we brought her home from Korea at 11 months old, she didn’t want anything to do with him. For the first several days, I was the one that took care of her needs and held her each night as she cried for her foster momma. After awhile, I became so exhausted so my hubby took over the night time comforting and feedings. They bonded during those early morning hours and she became a complete Daddy’s girl <3
