July 3, 2007 — We announced to many of our friends that we were beginning the process of adopting a baby from Vietnam! And we started a blog to track the journey.
July 3, 2008 — We received our official referral for Lya and shared the news and pictures with our friends and family!
July 3, 2009 — We are a family of three! And have been for just over 9 months. Tonight we took a boat ride up the bay to watch the fireworks. Lya LOVED them. She pointed and exclaimed “ooh!” and “woa!” through the entire thing. She loves being on the water and loved the show. She even stayed up until 10:00pm. She passed out in the ergo on the ride back and transferred to the carseat and crib without any fuss.
