Happy 5th Birthday, Olivia!

Five years ago in China a beautiful little girl was born. This little girl went on to be known as Fu Ai Man. About the time Fu Ai Man was born, Neil felt the leading from God to adopt. Most of you who know us know that I was 'not on the same page'! But time, and prayer, would lead us down an incredible path...



I have never shared this before. This is the 1st known photo (other than her finding ad) of Livie (Fu Ai Man). She is 4 months old in this photo. Here is another amazing Red Thread in our story to Livie: This photo was taken on the day we formally made the decision to adopt from China and submitted our Application to CCAI. There IS a God, and I know He was working hard to bring us to our daughter.



One of Livie's teachers, Miss Kelly. Livie celebrated her big day today at school with all of her friends. Sophie and I brought pizza, cupcakes and juice to help celebrate our Livie turning a 'whole hand'! Later we had a dinner of Chinese Food (Livie's choice!) and more cupcakes with the whole family. We had a wonderful day, and we plan on celebrating Livie's Birthday more through the coming days, since Sophie's birthday (her 3rd birthday!) is on Monday, meaning we are in for a weekend of CELEBRATING!

Happy Birthday, Livie!
