January 21, 2002 was a day that changed my life forever. I will never forget the moment that I saw Caeline Xi Ru for the first time.
She was so scared. After filling out tons of paperwork we went up to hotel room. She relaxed as soon as I fed her.
We had a wonderful time getting to know each other.
The medical exam.
My beautiful baby.
At the American Consulate swearing to take care of her forever.
Our last night in China
Arriving home and becoming an American citizen.
I fell in love with Caeli the moment I saw her and have been privileged to watch her become a beautiful, smart, talented young lady. I am so lucky that she is in my life.
