M's 2nd Year Gotcha Day!
September 30, 2011

Today was our last day of vacation in Vail.  More importantly, this was Mackenzie's 2 year anniversary of Gotcha Day!

Two years ago today, we were handed our daughter moments before we got in the van on the way to the airport for the long flights home (in Korea, you don't get possession of your child until you leave the country - in our case, that was in the van - yikes!)

It's hard to believe that so much time has gone by -  but in a flash. And when I see her now, I am so proud of her.  How kind she is.  Sympathetic.  Empathetic.  A big sister.  Smart as a whip.  Tells me she loves me everyday.  Curious and inquisitive.  And doesn't forget a thing.

I can't imagine our lives without her.  People tell us all the time how lucky she is.  We are, by far, the lucky ones.
