One Year Ago....

It's hard to believe, but it has been one year since we saw Miss Wesleigh's picture for the first time. The picture was taken when she was 16 months old. (She is now 33 months) It's hard to even believe that it's of the same child. What an amazing day...what an amazing child. She's a blessing sent straight from heaven!


A number of months ago, Wesleigh lost a little bracelet that my mom had bought for her. It had her initials engraved in it, and I loved it. It was really her first "special" piece of jewelry she had been given. I got way too emotional over it being lost and felt like she had already lost so much by living in an orphanage for two years...this was one more thing...lost. My mom replaced the bracelet with this silver one (that I'm scared to let her wear!!) She also found this ring from when she was a baby and passed it down to Wesleigh. I've been meaning to take a picture and post about it, but I'm kind of glad I never did. I love this picture.

I'm playing around with a new lens and trying to get the feel of it. I know this picture isn't great, but for some reason, I think it's sweet.

Girl you are not kidding! That is one incredibly transformation! Need advice about what to wear and weather conditions in GZ since we'll be traveling around the same time that you did! Fill me in sista!

I am thrilled that the ring fits! Wesleigh, it is 62 years old! I hope you pass it down to your baby girl one day. I tried it on your mom when she was a baby, but I was afraid it would get lost if she actually wore it! You have a heritage from China to be cherished, but we believe that you were born to share in ours as well. It is so hard to believe that it has only been a year since I pasted a copy of that first picture in my prayer journal! I love you, little girl! MawMaw

Wesleigh, P.S. to my last post - I am now pasting a copy of this picture of you with my baby ring on in my prayer journal!
