Today was the 4 year anniversary of the date Sofia was placed in our arms in China. I will never forget that perfect day. Actually it was a perfect evening since it was approx. 20 minutes after we arrived in China. I remember that she did not cry, she just looked deeply into our eyes and just seemed to know that we were there to take care of her forever. She was so smart and trusting, even at almost 11 mos. She gave John and I the best gift in the world…being her parents! I was looking through our pics from China and found this one of us at the Guangzhou Zoo sitting on the big kangaroo’s lap. I had almost forgotten about Sofia having the reverse mohawk when we received her. China had operated on her lip shortly before we arrived and had to insert an IV in her head so they had to shave a line down her head. John and I were in love the minute we saw her and have been ever since.
