To My Precious Twin Boys......

Happy Birthday!!!

We hope you have a wonderful 3rd birthday! We wish so much that we could be there to celebrate with you. We want to watch you gleefully open presents, excited to get a peek at what's inside. We want to see you blow out your candles and make wishes! We want to watch as you eat cake and ice cream, probably for the first time in your lives.We want to share these and so many more American birthday traditions with you. But most of all, we wish we could be there to hold you in our arms on your special day. To whisper in your little ears just how much you mean to us and how thankful we are that you are now a part of our family. We miss you so much, and our arms and hearts are aching for you. We hope that somehow, you will know today that even though we are thousands of miles apart, we are loving you, cherishing you, and rejoicing in the fact that we will soon see you again. Sometimes I think of that old song "Somewhere Out There":

"Somewhere out there
Beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me
and loving me tonight.

Somewhere out there
Someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another
In that big somewhere out there.

And even though I know 
How very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing
On the same bright star.

And when the night wind 
Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby,
It helps to think we're sleeping
Underneath the same big sky.

Somewhere out there
If love can see us through
Then we'll be together
Somewhere out there, out where dreams come true."

A couple of nights ago, I even dreamed that I was holding you again. You were so excited to see me, and you had learned English since we saw you last! You said that you couldn't wait to come home to America. It was such a sweet dream. 

Have an awesome, fantastic and wonderful birthday, boys! We are looking forward to the day that we'll all be able to celebrate together. You're in our prayers today and always, and we hope to see you again soon!!!

We love you with all our hearts,
Daddy, Mommy, Shanie, Adie, Ashie, and Mimi
