Five years ago today we got the call that would forever change our lives. Suzanne (a family coordinator at our agency) called me at work. Just as I was e-mailing a fellow travelmate that I guess we would not be getting our calls that day and that it was hard to bear as most of our February Firecrackers DTC group had already gotten their calls (Hi Marla!!) two days prior so we were about crazy with wonder when ours was going to come. Just as I was telling S that I knew it was all in God's timing but tell that to my heart the phone rang at work and I heard the receptionist say "May I tell her who is calling? Just a moment." I quickly typed "I'm on the call now!" to S. It was our agency telling me we had a beautiful daughter who was 7.5 months old and in the Jiangxi Province. I tried to call David and my BFF (at the time) and got neither. I finally got both of them and we made our trek to our agency to see our daughter for the first time. She was a tiny peanut and still is today. She is now 5.5 and enjoying Kindergarten.
