Happy Anniversary To The Schaller Family

Yes, I think that about sums it all up. "Happy Anniversary to the Schaller Family." Today is our 11th Wedding Anniversary and it is also our 2nd Anniversary of our Adoption Day, making it our Forever Family Day. To back up a little, it was actually on March 13, 2007 that we 1st laid eyes on our precious gift. It was Gotcha Day. It's always this time of year that I really think hard about the heart ache that Siena's birth mother & father must have endured when they placed her out into the world for a caring person to find so that she could be brought into our world. Of course I actually think about it throughout the year but I guess the Gotcha Day always hits a little harder. Remembering back to that cold day in China when we walked into a big sparsely furnished room in a Chinese Government building where our little girl was being held by a young man from the orphanage that placed her in our arms. She was a tiny little thing, buried in a bundled of yellow & black. I was holding back excitement & tears so that I wouldn't scare her. Her chubby little cheeks were rosy red, her cry was congested from a chest cold & she was, of course, more scared than we were. Being new parents we didn't know what to do but just tell her that, "It's all right. We love you & we will always be there for you, you'll never be alone. We're your Mommy & Daddy. We waited so long for you."

Our lives were forever, happily, changed!
Happy Anniversary to the 2 Loves of My Life!!!
