On April 10, 2014, Dennis and I boarded a plane that would take us across the world to Hong Kong. There, waiting across the border in Guangdong, China was our daughter, Katherine. Excited and nervous, we couldn't get to her quick enough. Although all smiles in the picture, we were putting on a brave face as we prepared to leave Rosie and Jack for 16 days. It was torture as our friend Julie picked us up and drove us to the airport. I cried most of the way as she nervously chatted about the dress she picked for the occasion... Asian themed with a delicate crane print. Only Julie would coordinate her outfit for the event and I smile every time I think of it.
Just 4 days after this picture was taken, I was holding my girl in my arms. Katie's "Gotcha Day" anniversary is this week! Can you believe our Little Love has been home a year! A trip down memory lane is in order as we celebrate the day she joined our family.
