One Year.

One Year ago today we were in Xi'an China anxiously counting down to meet our sweet girl.

Oh, how life has changed in one simple year. For our family and for our girl especially.

One Year ago we were very much manageable as a family of 7. Everyone was very easy to manage and we lived the high life, but something…someone was missing.

One Year ago a little girl lay dying in an orphanage. At 28 months old she barely weighed 12lbs. She had never known anything but her crib and being left.

Today, Life is incredibly different.

Today, we are a messy, everywhere, child-proofed family. Our littlest princess is into everything and is affectionately known as "Tornado Ting"

Today, that 12lbs baby is now a 32lbs 3 year old who is so full of love and life it simply radiates.

Today, we are simply thankful that God would choose our family to have this special little girl in our life.

Today, we can't imagine our lives without Ainsley Ting….and we don't want to.
