1 year anniversary of Mei Mei's referral

One year ago today the Noodle and I had just returned from our second ER visit of the summer to find out that, yes in fact, she had broken her wrist again.  I was fixing our lunch so I could take her back to the babysitter's house so that I could go in and work at least 1/2 of my professional day at school.
Then the phone rang and the whole world tipped upside down.

It was our agency.  I was dumbfounded.  I knew that at some point in time we'd get a call, but I certainly wasn't expecting it then.  I listened with bated breath about the referral of a little girl who had a repaired cleft lip and cleft palate who had just turned 2.  She was a bit older than we had originally thought, but I quickly confirmed that yes, we were interested in learning more about her.  I wrote all about it here.
They e-mailed the file to us, but J and I waited until that evening to read it or look at the sweet little face of Wu Yu Mei.  It nearly KIILLED me, but I wanted us both to see it at the same time and I had to teach my exercise class that evening so it wasn't until 8:30 before we sat down together, prayed and then clicked the e-mail open.
The rest is history!!

We love you Littl' Buddy and can't imagine life with out you now!!
