Andrew - Gotcha Day one year later

In china-Cherrios Won him over, and look at him now our big boy!

It has be a year since our Gotcha Day of our dear little boy. Where did that year go and how has he changed. In so many ways he doesn't even look like the boy we brought home but that shining personality is the same. He has the most outgoing personality I have ever meet and just loves people. Was this coping skills in the orphanage or just Andy. A little of both we believe. He was loved in China and our hearts always go back to the people who loved him there. What would they say now. Andy loves to play with all his heart and soul. He loves to bounce, jump, and run all hours of the day. He has learned that vegetables are a battle between Mom and him:), and that a cookie is a fine treat. He loves the water, snow and all in between. He has no fears while his Mom must face hers with him! I am amazed with him and who he is. A year ago I waited up all night for Brian or my parents to call and tell me about our son. I was so sad to not be there to see him for the first time. Now I get to kiss him as much as I want, if I can catch him:). God is good. The path to Andy was not always easy but he knew he needed us and we needed him. It has been an awesome year. We have our problems, just as any family, but at the end of the day we are so blessed with children. Mr Andrew has changed us all and I can not imagine my life without him! Happy Family Day Andrew we love you so!
