Today is 11 years since we met Kali the first time in the Golden Anhui Hotel in Hefei. We have heard the hotel is gone, but not out memories of walking her up and down the hallways. The tears of joy and fear and most of all, the heart shattering love we have for our first child. She was scared to death of Boyd but smiled immediately for me. She was a shy girl. Not too shy, just in a really cute way. Now I have a very smart, honest, soft-hearted beautiful tween, almost a teenager. It is hard to imagine where all the time went, but the memories are there forever.
