Faith Hope and Love

Janie was invited to a birthday party today for a little girl in her Preschool class. She was SO excited to go to a party without her sisters! This was a first. The last two years, we missed all the Saturday birthday parties because we were in Chinese school. But, we have taken a one year break from Chinese school this year. It takes away a PRECIOUS layer from our lives (painful to do) but maybe the layer that arrives in its place will hold beauty. Like this.
Isn't Janie something? I notice that I speak A LOT of May on my blog. May is oldest and ... well ... does more! But, Jane and Irene are precious in their own ways.
Janie is Love. Pure love. I feel love from her and to her in every cell of my being. I adore this kid.
A Grandma today told me that I must love her like my own after this long. I had to laugh. She HAS BEEN "my own" since the first moment I saw her at 2 years and 3 months of age in Nanchang, Jiangxi, China, and she stole my heart away. I love her with my WHOLE Janie Heart.

OK, I know it was Janie, not May. Sorry!
