5 Years Home--Sara SongYan Agee

Five years ago today we arrived in Fuzhou, China and met our oldest daughter, Sara.  I'll never forget how unsure you looked and how unsure we felt.  While we knew you were our child--chosen and loved, we weren't sure what to expect adopting a teenager.

You have literally blossomed into a beautiful young lady before our very eyes.  When we first met you, you were a little shy and reserved.  But you are now are becoming a woman with great purpose!

Let's take a look back and see how much you have grown . . .

We can't wait to see what amazing things our God does through you.  You have already blown us away by how much you love God and want to do what He wants.

And today, as we celebrate in 2 different countries--you in the U.S. and us in Honduras, I know that God will continue to grow you.  You are so brave to choose to stay and complete your high school degree.  We can't wait to celebrate these milestones with you.

You are beautiful inside and out.  Let God shine through you!

Happy 5th Gotcha Day Hannah HaiYan Agee!

Can you believe it has been 5 years since we traveled to China and met our daughter Hannah?

    This was our first time we saw Hannah in person.

                                                                      First Hugs!

Hannah came home and has since become a part of our family--The Agee's.  Over the past five years we have watched her grow into a fun-loving, and sassy young lady.  She is full of life and adds much laughter to our family.  Take a look at how she has physically changed from this little girl--to a new teenager!

                          Every Christmas we have worked at Days of Creation Christmas Tree Farm.

Every year Hannah, her sisters, and their Daddy go to the Father/Daughter dance.

Happy 4th!  We sure are glad you are our little firecracker!

Our newest 13 year old!

Yes--our Hannah Banana and our Hannah monkey is growing up before our very eyes.  We have had the joy to watch her make the decision to follow Christ with her life.  While she is still growing in her faith, she has a very sweet heart and she is excited that we are moving to Honduras to care for the orphans.

We can't wait to see how the next 5 years unfold!  We are blessed to be your Mom and Dad!  Happy 5th Gotcha Day!

Hugs and Kisses,
