This blog chronicles the miracles and struggles of our daughters, Emily and Olivia. Emily was born 15 weeks early and had many complications, but she continues to amaze us! Olivia, born in China with heart complications, is also beating the odds. She joined her forever family (us!) when she was four years old and has been doing wonderfully! UPDATE: We started homeschooling August 2009 :)

Olivia's first birthday party: 5 years old!
...finally getting around to posting Olivia's birthday pix. Since both girls had fevers on Olivia's birthday we had to reschedule both the neighborhood basement surprise and the family party. In doing so, her birthday celebrations were stretched out over multiple days and multiple celebrations. I don't think she minded one bit! I imagine this was the first time her birthday was celebrated and she took in all in. It's hard to believe she is FIVE!!
P.S. Our one year "GOTCHA" anniversary is coming up in a few weeks! In some ways it's hard to believe it's almost been a year, in other ways it seems like Olivia has always been here.
