8 years ago today....

8 years ago today, April 8, 2002, my life changed forever. We got the long awaited "call" from our agency to say that we had a little girl waiting for us in China. We didn't know much but we fell in love right away. Feng Rui Qing was born on February 23, 2001 and was waiting for us in the province of Guizhou in southern China. We hadn't even seen a picture yet but knew that she was ours. It's hard to put into words what I was thinking that day 8 years ago. I had waited 16 years for a sister and now I finally knew who she was and where she was. So many emotions and thoughts went through my head the next 2 months until I met Kiah for the first time on June 6, 2002. My life has been changed forever. This little girl brings so much joy and laughter to our family and we can't imagine our lives without her. She and I have such a special bond and I love this little girl with all my heart. I miss hear dearly but know that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be. Hard to believe that it's only been 8 years since I saw her precious face for the first time.


  1. I hope my sons will remember that waiting for their sisters was worth it! I know they will say that their lives changed forever!!! It is so sweet that you have such a special relationship/bond with a sibling that's 16 years younger.

  3. So precious, Anneli. I love that you have such a great relationship with your mei mei!! :) She is blessed to have you, and you, her! I bet she can't wait for you to get back home.

    I'm praying I still get to meet you. We found out late yesterday afternoon that our papers are sitting on the directors desk, just waiting for his signature. Apparhently he is out on business, and may not be in for 2 weeks. Please pray otherwise. But right now, unless something major happens, we definitely won't be coming until May sometime. So many hang-ups, but Khloe is SO worth the wait. I pray that she and Breanna have the same bond that you have with Kiah. I'm certain they will!!

    Have a blessed weekend! <><
