Eliza turned 14 while we were in China, but since we hadn’t celebrated her birthday yet with my parents , we decided to celebrate her birthday too.

    Their smiles are all so wonderful. My two favorite pics are
    #1. Eliza at the corner of the counter with the cake in front of her. She is beaming!!
    #2. The one where Evangeline is next to Olivia (I think), looking up into Poppy’s face and he is making faces at them. She loves him already, you can see it.
    You’re family is beautiful.

    Oh Diane! My son from China, nearly 5 yrs of age when he joined our family, got his birthday cake when he was home 3 months. He was so exited about it! I checked with the house parents of the small scale children’s village where he used to live for 3,5 yrs prior to going to a foster family the year before we got him. They said that the kids never had a cake of their own, just for their birthday, let alone presents. These little things are so important for them! Also, celebrating your birthday with a family that you can call your own, who wouldn’t want that 😉
    So happy for you that both Evangeline and Eliza seem to fit in naturally with your family!
    warm regards,
    Claudia, The Netherlands, mom to Nina & Yuri from China.
