Two years ago today we were in China. And our world was completely rocked…
We were handed the confused, terrified little girl that we had held in our hearts for seven long months.
She promptly went into shock, and completely shut down…
We knew this could happen, and we knew it was normal, but it still was heartbreaking to watch.
Our family day was a day of complete joy…and desperate sadness.
Our little girl stayed like this for days…in the safety of her shut-down world.
Then, we began to see little glimpses of her fun personality start to emerge. She began to grieve, and we began to get to know each other.
There was nothing sadder than this little girl crying for her NaiNai… and nothing happier than her laughter.
