Gotcha Day: It's been 5 years!

I could write a book about that day... I could write a book about how time has flown and how time has stood still. I could write a book about how much we love you and how you have changed our lives for the better. But today is a busy day. Busy being your mom. Busy being your teacher. Busy celebrating 5 years. Busy cleaning for your final home study. (although we don't clean for them like we did that first one!!) 
I may write that book another day, but today lets just take a visual walk down memory lane and spend time celebrating.
March 23rd 2010.  Our forever family day!

 The great team at Chung Yi who helped bring us together!
 Learning how to "tell" us I am sleepy and I want a drink.
 Checking out the toys we brought for you.
He was impressed by the googly-eyed dinosaur book!
She wanted to wear every article of clothing we brought... Literally... Even the fairy wings. 
(She's wearing about 6 layers of clothes under all that and stockings on her head!)

My, how you have grown.
 How time has flown. 
It seems like a lifetime has passed but seeing those pictures from 5 years ago... it seems like yesterday!  
Pierson and Maylin you are a true gift. We love you to the moon and back.
