Thirteen years ago this month we were so blessed to meet and
bring home our most adorable daughter!
It was an amazing, fun and exhausting
trip to China to meet our sweet Maddy Mei.
Part of her Chinese name is Mei so we kept that
for her middle name!
She was much smaller than I anticipated at 14 months old. Since we had received
photos of her standing, I assumed she would be walking, but
that was not the case.
She was a speedy little crawler though and
moved on to walking and running fast once we were home!
Traveling to China is a trip of a lifetime --
meeting and bringing home a daughter is beyond amazing and wonderful and life-changing!
Our family has been truly blessed with our sweet Maddy.

Maddy blocked out the chaos with her hands up around her face -
something she did quite often for a few weeks.
Her Smile makes me smile.
Her laugh is infectious.
Her heart is pure and true.
Above all I love that
she is my daughter!
