Today is Zinnia’s special day.  This sweet girl, well, I wish you could know my ZINNIA!IMG_3525

She has a very sweet tender way about her.  This morning she said, “thank you God that I can celebrate my 2nd birthday!”  (since she’s never celebrated it in China).

    Love the picture of her blowing out the candles. She is precious, and it’s so good to hear her sweet joy at celebrating her second birthday! I love seeing how God has grown your family.

    Happy Birthday, Zinnia Joy! It is a gift to be able to watch you grow stronger in the love of your family. You become more beautiful in every new post. Oh, and i love your new ring!! Your Mama did a good job finding the perfect one for you.
    Laura, it’s wonderful to see you posting. I can imagine the joy AND the challenges of making life changes in your heart and home as you bring a new child home. The bonding process doesn’t allow time for the “extras” (Blogging), when you are learning all about our child’s life. All of the children are so beautiful and your family is a true example of what the Bible calls us all to do for orphans. Thank You, for sharing!
