Five months ago today, in a hotel room in Nanchang, China, I opened the door to this sight:
There are several events in my life that have, in a sense, divided my life into "before" and "after"... this was the most important one of my life. At last, I was seeing my daughter. At last, holding her. Playing with her. Feeding her. Knowing her.
Five months ago, I could only dream of the life I have today. They were sweet dreams, but the reality is so much more. Being Anna Kathryn's mom is my dream come true. What a difference five months makes!
Here are five of my favorite pictures from the past five months!
This was the second or third day AK was with us, (sadly, our trip is already beginning to blur a little) September 2008.
Her first book, September 2008.
"I think I can, I think I can... feed myself!" October 2008.
