September 18, 2009 -- WE MISSED IT!!!

AND THE ANSWER IS:
As of September 18, 2009 Noelle has officially been with our family longer (by one day) than she had been in orphanage care without a family.  Amazing!!  Eric and I are so honored to be the ones God chose for her parents. :-)

Some dear friends of ours celebrated this milestone with their daughter last year.  We actually were priveleged to help them celebrate Reagan's important day.  Eric and I thought it was a very nifty idea and planned to copy it for our family.  But darn it, with all the sickness and "other stuff" we've been dealing with recently, we both plum forgot!  I'm bummed. :-(  It may not have seemed significant to Noelle, but it means a lot to us.  We cannot go back in time, but I'm wondering if there is some way to recoup what we missed.  Hmmmm....  My fortune (cookie) says there is a Chinese meal in our immediate future!

QUESTION:
Can anyone think of what the significance of this particular date is???
You win a *GOLD STAR* if you can guess correctly...

Actually I'm guessing, based on a little sleuthing, that it is a 3 year anniversary of DTC?

Hi Jennifer....congrats on the anniversary! Our family has lived overseas so much and traveled frequently on important dates...so we have a family philosophy that 'when we are together, we celebrate' whether the date on the calendar agrees or not, it just doesn't matter. It's the thankfulness of our hearts that we choose to express, whenever and however we are able.
So, you three need to pick a day, any day, and celebrate your baby girl!!!!!

Bless you, sweetie,
Susan
