We gathered Labor Day weekend in the mountains of North Carolina at Lake Lure to celebrate our fourth anniversary of Gotcha Day. September 4th 2006 we were handed our precious gifts from Gaozhou. Every year since we have been together with the Lanes on this date to celebrate.
We cannot forget that these girls were each others first friends. They heard each others cries and played together. They spent a year together before either met their forever families. Their stories are very similar. Isn't it worth trying to get them together every year to celebrate and keep their friendship going? We think so!
Happy Gotcha Day Sam and Ruby!
We love you girls to the moon and back!
