Happy Forever Family Day Cora 1 Year

One year ago on June 3 we met our precious Cora. Although her day was filled with grief and mourning of the life and friends she would be leaving behind, it also brought beauty of a family to have. Our precious girl spent many years without the Love of a family, and we were so happy to have her in our arms. 
She preferred her daddy over mommy, but overtime she loves us both now. This year has been full of much blessing and much time of spiritual growth. We have had to walk our sweet girl through a lot of things this year, but one word rings true for our sweet Cora. BRAVE!!!!! She is such a brave girl, and she has overcome so much. As she opens up to us about China in small amounts over this year we really get to understand how Brave she is. And one things for sure, it hasn't broken her spirit. She is a little jokester and loves to laugh and play. So thankful for our sweet daughter.
