On May 14th, 2003 we finally got to hold Jazzie in our arms. It was one of the most overwhelming and emotional moments of my entire life. From the moment I held her close to me, I knew I would do anything for this child and that I would love her forever. Happy Forever Family Day, Jasmine Mei Chun. We love you so very much...
Here are some pictures of that day:
Catching a first glimpse of the babies (Jazzie is on the far left even though we did not know it at the time):
Back in the room (after removing her quilted snow suit in 90 degree weather):
She was such a tiny peanut; barely weighing 13 pounds.
The orphanage staff came to our hotel room to answer questions:
Here we are six years later and she has grown SO much. She used to fit perfectly in daddy's arms :-)
