Happy Familiversary to Us!

Three years ago, today, in a courtroom in DaNang:




Lana became our daughter. We took her back to the hotel room for a nap. She was so sad:



They had a going away party for us at the ophanage. Lana was shy and terribly sad. (Michelle! That is Bronte sitting next to Lana in these photos!)












We've come a long way, baby!

Amen to that! I'm overwhelmed with love and joy and even a bit of melancholy in reading this post. And Gabriel is such a fine big brother.

Three years, wow! I read your travel blog (I think I found it via Mrs. Broccoli Guy) and have only recently started reading your blog again. I can't believe it's been 3 years. Lana and the whole family look beautiful.

That makes me a little weepy (what doesn't these days, though). She sure has blossomed with you.

Wow! Love seeing the old pics with Bronte in them. Gosh, she looks so different now, as does Lana. Strange for me because it's hard to believe it's already been 3 years but at the same time looking at these pics feels like a life time ago. They've come a long way!

I love the new family photo too!
