I cannot believe it has been 2 years. Where did those years go? Oh, sweet sweet Jingying…How we are blessed beyond measure with you. Katie Mei, you are such joy to us. You complete our family in a way we could never have imagined. Walking that long and twisted red thread to find you was difficult, exhausting, exhilirating, emotional and by far worth every step. Thank you to Chenzhou Children’s Welfare Institute, who lovingly took care of our daughter for the first 9 months of her life. Thank you so much to AWAA for walking us through the process hand in hand. Jack and Sammy, who opened their hearts to welcome and adore this little sister of theirs with passion. Thank you to Michael, who had the dream in his heart to adopt our daughter from China. To our daughter’s birth parents, we are forever deeply indebted to you for loving Katie so much. We cannot begin to express our thanks enough. And to our heavenly Father, I have learned so much about you as my Father. I have seen first hand how you loved me before I loved you. Thank you for this amazing gift, one that I cannot comprehend. Katherine Mei Jingying Markmiller, we love you. Wo ai ni.
