Happy Gotcha Day

Tuesday November 23rd was the one year anniversary of Gotcha day! Ashlyn had a Thanksgiving play at school and she was so adorable. Later that night, we went to dinner at Fujiyama's with wai-po and wai-gong (wai-po shared in our journey in China a year ago). It's amazing how far Ashlyn has come from the scared little girl that did not know any English to the beautiful extraverted, loving girl that is surprising everyone that she meets at how much English she knows for only being here a year. She has grown more than 3 inches and has gained more than 8 pounds in the last year. She's gone through surgery, sicknesses, & has overcome. She knows how to read and is getting help for her speech impediment (submucous cleft palate). She loves to learn and loves to love. She is our little girl that is growing up already too fast, but with innocence. We love you Ashlyn...happy Gotcha Day!
