3 Year Referral Day Celebration!

3 years ago today life changed in the most wonderful and amazing ways!  3 years ago today I became a Mom!!!

I still remember many details of the day as if they were yesterday.  Other parts of a blur that all add up to receiving Hannah’s referral call at 3:30pm on Friday, August 21st, 2009!

More referral day memories can also be found here and this is a video of ‘The Call’!

Today Hannah and I celebrated this special day by going out for one of our favourite meals – Sushi!  IMG_7017

When we returned home we took our annual referral day celebration pics.  Then an now….where does the time go???  My precious Hannah with her referral day picture.  A walk down memory lane.

Dearest Hannah,

Mommy loves you so very, very much!  I am still humbled and honoured that God chose me to be your Mommy.  I cherish every moment we share together and more than once today tears sprung to my eyes as I gazed at you and was overwhelmed with love.  I love you to the moon and back sweet lovey.  My Hannah Banana, Xiao Xiao, Shaoey, XiaoFen.  Forever family – just as God planned for both of us before the beginning of time.

Love, Mommy  xoxo

  1. Congratulations! Oh, what a wonderful day to celebrate...and what a wonderful way to celebrate the day...sushi--that's Charlotte's favourite, too.

  2. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to watch that video without crying. Happy Day to you and Xiao Fen!

  3. Wow, 3 years!! Congratulations! So sweet :)

  4. Oh, tears in my eyes! What a perfect family. I love the picture of Hannah with the chopsticks. That's how happy I feel when I'm eating sushi!

  5. Congrats to you both! Aw, my mom passed away in May and I do remember her calling me lovey. I think it's a great nickname. I must remember to use it with my girls more often. My how Hannah has grown. Glad she likes Sushi. My older daughter is picky, but will try new things and we can always take them for sushi and bento boxes and they will eat it. Glad you enjoyed your day. Molly
