9 Months

Nine months ago, we were in China meeting our Lilybug!

Lily celebrated her 9 month Gotcha Day with a visit from the Tooth Fairy!!

I am amazed at how much she has changed.  Physically, she's gained 5 pounds, lost 2 teeth, and her hair is so much longer and healthier.  She pushes herself to get stronger everyday.  Her language is great!!  She understands almost everything that is said...if she is confused and needs clarification, she will let us know!  She speaks in full sentences and gets her point across.  Some things haven't changed, she is still bossy, bossy, bossy and charms everyone she meets with her sassy personality.

9 months later, I am still so thankful to be her Mama!  God knew exactly what He was doing when He gave her to us!


  1. Wow, I can't believe it has been 9 months! I'm so happy for you and your family!

  2. Hi Lily Bug

    My name is Jenna. you are a special miracle from god, a gift from above, earthly angel. You are full of happiness, life, smiles, joy, fun,love, and spunk.

    I am so happy you are talking, and your loving family and wonderful mom found you. You are a blessing to your family, just like they are a blessing to you. You are all lucky to have each other.

    I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

    I wrote this poem
    Each of us are Special
    Each of us different,
    No one is the same
    Each of are us are unique in our own way,
    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    Those who of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    It doesn't matter what others say
    we are special anyway.
    What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
