at the Galactic Peace Hotel in Nanchang, China.
A year later, today, Madeline is a confident, trusting, loving two and a half year old.
We are looking forward to a very special Thanksgiving Day this week, as we have so much to be thankful for. After dinner with close family, we are planning to watch our video footage of our Gotcha Day for the very first time, as well as our photos from our two week stay in China to relieve this miraculous event.
