Happy Anniversary X's TWO!!

Tuesday September 4, 2007 was our One Year Gotcha Day & our 14 Year Wedding Anniversaries. Its SOOOO cool to have these two life changing events to celebrate on the same day!

We went to Melbourne, FL to visit Nick & Christi Seaward, a couple that went to China with us and adopted their daughter Isabel. Jada & Isabel shared an orphanage together in Behai, China.

The Seawards were such AWESOME hosts. Gave us a room and bathroom all to ourselves, barely let us help cook or clean, had 3 square meals a day ready for us, wouldn't let us pay when eating out. The utmost in generosity! We loved spending a couple days with them, getting to know them better and letting Jada & Isabel spend some time together.

So, here are some pics.

Happy Anniversary...I thought of you guys during Labor Day weekend. I was remembering last year when I couldn't sleep with anticipation of you guys getting Jada. It's hard to believe an entire year has passed already. You guys are a beautiful family! Jada is so adorable! It's been awesome to have the honor to be able to watch the hand of God at work in your lives. And we are blessed to have you guys as friends!

We talked ALOT about swabbing their mouths for DNA testing. The look remarkably alike. We are definately gonna keep in touch with that family. We'd really like the girls to stay in touch and have that FABULOUS bond of being in the orphanage together. They are a GREAT couple that we consider good friends and if we see in the future more signs of their likeness, we may pursuit it. But, we'll wait for now.

Thank you guys!

It was a blessing to have you guys here! It was so meaningful to share our Gotcha Days together. It is interesting to hear other people notice the girl's resemblance too. Hope you guys are falling into a nice routine since your move and all. Love to you guys.
