Happy one year anniversary...

Happy Gotcha Day!

Thrilled to have there own candle on their cake



I'll never forget the day, one year ago from now. The best birthday ever. The day we held, hugged, and comforted our little girls for the first time. Although we were happy before, life is even better now. Sophie and Sage have made our family complete. The time has gone by fast, but I can't imagine our family without them.
S & S have been such a joy! We have thoroughly enjoyed hearing their giggles and seeing their face light up with each new experience. They love deeply and have bonded tight. When I go to put them down after holding them, they hold on as tight as they can and sweetly say "I'm not done!" They love their big brothers and have marvelous times with them.

Yes, they are curious, playful, active little girls that like to climb on anything that looks interesting, can you blame them? Because they have each other, they've held on to their Cantonese language a little longer. They speak mainly English now, with a touch of Cantonese, and probably some twin language mixed in. That doesn't stop them from communicating, if they don't know the right words, they will pantomime to get their point across (so cute). They have also overcome many fears and have learned to trust. ~they will never be left again

These girls are survivors! I will never know about their first 3 years of life, but they definitely know how to love and are very confidant, happy, playful girls.

So today marks my 40th Birthday- ouch! It came quick. My children make turning 40 fine and S & S keep me young, and some days wear me out, I mean keep me in shape :) I love you Sophie and Sage!!
