Sometimes I look into her beautiful brown almond-shaped eyes and imagine.
What would her life have been if she had never left China?
What would she be doing today.
Would she be playing?
Would she have friends?
Would she trust anyone?
Would anyone hug her?
Would anyone hurt her?
Would she be smiling?
Would she laugh?
It brings me to tears.
What would her life be like without her Mommy and Daddy?
And then I think, what would my life be like?
How many smiles wouldn't have crossed my lips?
How much laughter would this family have missed?
How many hugs would these arms have ached for?
How often would I sing and dance in my living room without her?
We have forever changed her life, and she has forever changed ours.
I'm so thankful.
