To celebrate MeiMei's first bday we participated in the NYC Annual Buddy Walk to raise awareness for individuals with Down Syndrome. We were so touched with the outpouring of support and those that spent the day with us. There was a group of awesome volunteers from OCM and CCP that cheered the walkers along. One of the main highlights was seeing MeiMei's picture on the big screen in Times Sq. She's such a rock star! Happy Birthday baby!

Happy Birthday my sweet girl!
One year ago, we had no idea what to expect or what was in store for our family. This year has proved to be a year where we were showered with blessing upon blessing. God is good and he gives wonderful gifts.
Makayla (MeiMei) has grown before our very eyes. She's feisty and sweet. She loves her brother and he brother adores her. She babbles, rolls and has the strongest legs! She used to be quite stingy with the smiles but now freely gives them out. She is soaking in the world and I can't wait to see what adventures the future holds. I know she will be used in a mighty way to break through barriers of all kinds. there are no limits!
I LOVE YOU!

Kenny and I went to a parenting workshop by helen lee the author of Missional Mom. It was a great workshop and really made us think about how to raise our kids to glorify God. We got some ideas for family traditions. So, for birthdays we are telling the kids that they get something but they also give something.
For Joey's birthday he got to go to Chuck E Cheese in TORONTO and he gave his time for the Bread and Water Walk to raise money for orphans in China. He also chose a walker to donate to an orphanage in China. Every night he's been praying for the orphans. I almost talked him into giving half of his birthday money to the orphans but 2 seconds later he said he wanted to keep it. :)
We also had a great time reconnecting with my best buddy Lis and her family.
Joey and Beatrice
When I first met Lis, we were single ladies living up the New York City life as grad students. Now look at us!
