|Cousins: Lucy, Ellie, and Ruby (clockwise)|
Two years ago, John, Nicholas, and I left for China on Thanksgiving morning. We were on our way to meet our new baby girl, Ellie. While it was sad to not spend the holiday together, we were so excited to finally meet Ellie after waiting for her for 5 years (she was only 13 months old at the time, but we had told Olivia she was getting a baby sister from China when she was 3 years old...instead she got 2 brothers, but she was patient and finally got what she always wanted!) Anyway, we will always associate Thanksgiving with our trip to our precious daughter and will always be thankful that we get to celebrate this holiday together.
