4:30 pm December 2, 2009

"4:30pm...We just took Veronica's call. Sweet heavens. I did a conference call from my work phone. Your Dad was driving home - in the rain. You are from Kunming. Your birthday is May 19. Baby girl - your birthday is the same as your Mommy's. I have a zillion phone calls to make...first up? Grandma and Grandpa."

The rest of the night unfolded like a dream. Literally, hundreds of emails and phone calls. The doorbell again and again. She touched so many lives that evening. God's hand guided us home. Together. A three-some. At last.


  1. I cannot remember - did we go to El Ponderosa that night? Or was it later that week?

    Getting to know our sweet Ella has been a highlight of our year!
