We were surrounded by many family and friends and as you can see Hannah was her true self. She was happy, smiley and waving like crazy! She spotted her picture on the 2 screens, saw family and friends in front of us and her Grandma in the choir. She waved like crazy but just couldn't quite figure out why they weren't wildly waving back! :o) She is busy, busy right now and just wanted to get down and run! Oh what an amazing day this was!! God is so good!!
I have longed for and prayed about this day for so long! In China I purchased her dedication dress at the silk factory and had mine made at the silk market, all in preparation for this most amazing day!! Anticipating what it would be like to hold my child, the one God entrusted into my care. It was a feeling unlike any other and I am so very,very thankful to God for the most wonderful, precious, amazing gift of Hannah Catherine XiaoFen!!
"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him (her) to the LORD. For his (her) whole life he (she) will be given over to the LORD."
1 Samuel 1: 27, 28
