My daughter

'A daughter is a gift of love.'

'If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come.'
~Chinese Proverb

This incredibly beautiful little girl is the child I hoped to have for many years. When you meet Grace in person you see qualities of serenity, peace, kindness and absolute love. Grace is the perfect name for her. I think her personality comes forth in photos, but I'm not sure. Grace has had many changes this year with going to China and getting a new brother and starting Kindergarten. She has faced them all head on. She loves William with all her heart. She adores school and is starting to read. Grace has an infectious laugh and it comes easily. She swims like a fish. She loves to have fun. She is a sensitive soul, just like her momma.

What a beauty Grace is and I love that her gorgeous name fits her. I also really like the new profile picture.

Jane is so much like me it astounds everyone. My kids call Jane, and I quote, "Mom's Mini Me;)!"
We saw it right after we held her in China!

She is so beautiful....and yes, I do think her personality comes across in all of your pictures!! So sweet and innocent, yet so caring and compassionate towards Will. Grace is such a wonderful big sister to him....and it does seem as though she has adjusted really well.....that is a lot of change in one year!!
