Today our little Avery Ha-rin turns one. She will celebrate with her foster family in Korea. Holt will have a party for all the babies turning one and she will attend. She will wear a beautiful hanbok dress and celebrate in traditional Korean style. She will get our presents, eventually, and will open them, and although I'm so glad Holt provides soemthing special for all the babies, she is still not home, and I will miss it all. I'm terribly sad about this. I'm not angry, not stressed, not worried, just sad. So happy birthday sweet baby girl. We love you so much and some day we will be able to hold you,love you, and bring you home forever.
Here are some photos of the birthday package we sent her.
Her very own birthday hat
Her 1st birthday bib
A birthday dress
Its traditional to give gold jewelry on a child's first birthday, so we bought her this gold bracelet.
Everything is all wrapped and ready to go.
I managed to fit it in the box! Its a miracle!
Happy birthday sweetheart.
