Six years ago today, we adopted Zoe from Phu Tho, Vietnam. We usually do something to celebrate the day, but this year that celebration seemed to be more significant to her. It wasn’t necessarily that she has processed adoption more, or given more significance to what that means. It was just that today was her day, and that it was special. She’s been excited about it all week. She told her teacher, her gymnastics instructor, our hairstylist, and the woman we know at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant (where we ate tonight).
These are crappy iPhone pics, but here’s my sassy girl today:
