March 2008- in Beijing

We were in Beijing at this time 2 years ago. We enjoyed climbing the Great Wall and seeing the beauty of China. We were enjoying shopping for a jade bracelet that will someday be passed on to Lily. We loved seeing the Chinese acrobats perform the night before we flew to Nanchang to hold Lily for the first time. We were so thankful that God had planned for us to be Lily's parents. Every moment in China gave us more reminders of how awesome life can be when you allow God to be in charge of everything you do. He gave us the best gift we could ever imagine- our beautiful daughter.
God also gave us new friends that shared our journey and will be in our hearts forever. Jenny and Danny are one of the couples that went to China with us. Their room was beside ours in Nanchang, and our girls sat in the hallway outside our rooms together on the day we got them.
He also gave us a wonderful family that we have visited a few times since we have been home- Beth, David, Liana, and Marah. There will be pictures posted of them tomorrow.
