We actually started last night by releasing a lantern - from a timing perspective this would have been her actual birthday morning in China since she is 13 hours ahead of us.
And, today we had cake and sang Happy Birthday!
Our birthday letter to our little miss ...
Sweet Baby Girl,
Today we celebrate you – it’s your first birthday! Our little one, God made you beautiful and we cannot wait to hold you and pour our love on you. You have been a part of our family since we began this adoption journey, God knew you long before we had the privilege of seeing your sweet little face in photos.
Our hearts are with you today and with many emotions we pray for you, little one, as you celebrate your first and perhaps your only birthday in your home country.
HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY, SWEETHEART!!!!
With much love,
Your Forever Family - Daddy, Mommy, Jack, Samuel & Lydia
