2 years ago tonight

During the night on December 17th, 2005, we were awakened at 3:30 a.m. by a phone call. This was the norm with Rich's job in Okinawa, but this was a call from the U.S. A woman from Harrah's Adoption International Mission was on the phone with news that we had been chosen to adopt a little girl in Shangrao, Jiangxi, China. Her name was Ling Guang Su and she was just about to turn a year old.
Two years later, she has been with us for 15 months and we can't imagine life without her. Those that know us here think we have had her since she was only a few months old. She is now legally named Lily Su Grace Messina and will be 3 years old in a couple of weeks. We are so blessed!

Yeah! Happy Adoption News Anniversary! I hope the Pointers see this post. In case you didn't know they got news in June(I think) about starting the long adoption wait.
