A Special Day!

Today was a special day!
Two years ago we arrived in Seattle from China with Lucy, and she met her Brothers for the very first time!

Today we went to the airport to welcome our dear friends home from China with their two new "teenage" Sons!! They have walked an admirable walk in Faith and are blessed beyond measure with now 6 wonderful children...5 adopted from China in the last 7 years!! ( I will share those pics soon!!)

I thought that since we were at the airport :) I would take pics of Lucy and each of her brothers, like my friend Terry captured that day two years ago.

I know I do ALOT of posts of just really is only because she is such an eager and willing participant in all my little photo sessions...the boys have had their fair share (trust me) those moments just came before I ever knew what a blog was :) I never want them to feel like I didn't give them their "time" here, but they are a little more protective of their privacy.

Each of these wonderful Guys of ours have opened their hearts and made a place for this little sister. They love her and would do just about anything for her. Yes, she annoys them at times, yes they (she and Bennett) irritate each other at times, yes she plays the "little sister" card quite often...but I do know they each couldn't imagine their life without her in it.

I love seeing how each of them has changed and matured in the last 2 years.

Bennett and Lucy

Blake and Lucy

Powell and Lucy


  1. I remember this day for two reasons. One, it was my birthday and two, I LOVED that grin of hers! I can't believe it's been 2 years already. Happy homecoming day!


  2. Yes, I remember these photos too! Has it been 2 years?! I just LOVE her smile...even from the very beginning!

  3. Big brothers are the best! Cute pictures!

  4. I love them all. They have all grown and matured so much. The combination of the boys and Lucy make it all just right.
    We have a beautiful life with Lucy but it just wouldn't be the same without the love of my grandsons.
    I love you all very much.
    Powell Blake and Bennett thank you for being who you are for yourselves and for Lucy. You have accepted her as if she was yours from the day she was born. she looks up to each of you in her own way.I know she loved her date with Powell on this special day.
    I love you and thank you again for making all of us so proud.

  5. God has blessed you with such a beautiful family. Thank you for sharing these precious moments.
