|Our first moments with Gwen, six years ago!|
Reminiscing a little today... remembering the day in December 2005 when Gwen first toddled into our lives in her squeaky panda shoes and we could finally say, "Now we are six!" We enjoyed watching video of the day we met Gwen in the civil affairs office in Chengdu, and the happy days we spent in China after that with the rest of our adoption travel group. We all giggled at how cute and funny Gwen was then! Can't believe how tall and beautiful she has grown to be. We made this "G" cookie for both Gwen and Gotcha!
We also read Gwen's adoption/life book today, and she asked to take it to school to share with her class. When I emailed her teacher about it, she was really positive and said they will certainly make time to read it tomorrow with the class. She also mentioned to me that she has overheard Gwen talking about being adopted several times this school year. So glad she is feeling positive and wanting to share her story!
