Happy Birthday to You song

A year ago, there was this little girl in China, who didn't know it yet, but she was our daughter.

She didn't understand, but she would one day.

And on her first birthday in America, 2 weeks after she came home, she didn't get it...but she would.

And she slowly but surely became at home, in her home, as we knew she would.

And started to adjust and love her family, even the ones that live far away.

And winter turned to Spring, and she was loving being outside. And exploring what this family had to offer her little life.

And even though her love for her daddy started on Day 1, it grew and grew, and still grows today.

And on the 4th of July, I think she realized she loves being an American, specially celebrating with those fireworks!!!

And her Americanization grew to a fault.  :P

Her favorite part being the pumpkin patch; she still talks about it.

And her momma knows & has taught her what is important in life, now she loves to talk to Jesus, go to church, read her Bible, be helpful, 'eat your food', and cheer for the best team around.

Coming from southern China, she experiences new things all the time.

And 2 weeks ago, she celebrated with one of her little best friends. ( Elly is the one in the brown  :D) Counting down to...


And for the past few days, someone has been singing:

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to meeeeeeeeeeee...
Happy birthday to you.

Happy Birthday dear child of my heart! 

The first thing you asked when you woke up this morning is: " Momma where is my cake?"
