Lucy's 3rd Birthday

Today was Lucy's actual birthday (okay, about as actual as a child from China can have with estimated birthdays and all! LOL!). Although I (mommy) actually had to "work", we still had a fun day. We started off at an indoor gym we frequent we friends, and then after a brief nap in the car, it was off to dinner. (Matching outfits courtesy of the DiMickele Family. Abby already had hers from Christmas, and they bought Lucy hers for her birthday.)
Happy 3rd Birthday Sweet Girl! Mommy & Daddy Love You!

..and then onto my birthday dinner!

A early birthday gift to Lucy from T and Eileen

Two years ago today....

.....we got "the call". It was a Friday morning and I was at work. The phone rang late morning, and they had NO caller ID. It was a complete shock! Denise from CCAI was on the phone, and said she had a "little peanut" whose file they wanted us to look at. She was 11 months old and on the special needs list. I was shaking and in tears!! "OF COUSE!" I shouted at her. (Keep in mind we had NO IDEA this was coming........we were in the "regular" program and had submitted a MC list, but were told the chances of receiving a match for a YOUNG child from the SN list was probably not possible . Also, we had only been "Logged In" for 3 MONTHS. Yes, that's right, 3 MONTHS! Like I said, complete shock!) When I finally was able to open her pictures, (thanks T!) I was in love! Now it was time to find my husband. Would you believe he was NO WHERE to be found?!? I think I called his work and cell phone at LEAST 30 times. His mother was actually the first to hear about her and now SHE was in charge of tracking him down! After finally talking with Mark we agreed to go ahead and accept her referral. (I am wondering now if that was the quickest Denise has ever had a return phone call!) We called all of our family and friends, and gathered that night at Dave & Busters to celebrate. I remember staying up until 3:30am just staring at her pictures! These were our first glimpses of Cen Li Kun, now our precious daughter Lucy!
