6 Years Old

     Happy Birthday to our dear sweet Chloe.  We celebrated several times but what you see is her favorite foods all in one meal.  Chloe chose: pizza, macaroni and cheese, corn on the cob, watermelon, and strawberry pie instead of cake.
   Some of the gifts Chloe was given was a kitten glasses stand so she can always find her new glasses and an American Girl doll with long straight hair.  She loves to do her hair!
    We also celebrated Chloe's birthday last week in Colorado with fellow adoptees.  They all turned 6 within 5 days of each other.
 We celebrated their special bond by giving each of them a Chinese character "sister" pendent on a red cord to remind them that even if they can't see each other very often, there is a common history that will always bind them together.

The Red Thread Connection

     We are blessed to be spending some time in Colorado this week with 2 adoptive families we traveled to China with 5 years ago.  On the first night in town we had a quick photo shoot with a professional photographer that had been on our China trip also.  It was amazing to watch the innate connection these 3 little girls had immediately when they were put together once again.  Below is a post that Tara the photographer posted about our "red thread" girls.
