Anna's Birthday Party!

Brady picked out all his clothes head to toe with no help from us. He also had a Tennessee ball cap but I didn't get a picture of him with it on.

the best I could get...

The kids had a blast at Fun Expedition for Miss Anna's birthday party. Anna was at Shantou with Brady and we were in China the same time as her (totally awesome and wonderful) parents. Bonnie (Anna's mom) knew what a struggle I was having in China. They left to come home a few days before we did and she actually called me in China from her house to check on me and give me a pep talk before our flight home (which I was dreading). We are so blessed to know Anna's family and feel that Anna and Brady are so blessed to get to grow up with an orphanage mate so close. We have a picture of Brady and Anna at Shantou together and want to get an updated one but haven't been that lucky yet:)

Indeed that is a wonderful blessing! He is so darn cute! And each time I see his picture he looks a little more relaxed.

Someday we will get a picture of Anna and Brady smiling! Maybe at the prom:) Thanks for sharing Anna's special day with us. It wouldn't be the same without you guys. You have done such an awesome job with all your children. We are so proud of you!
