Music to HER ears

Last week we expereinced the most beautiful thing with Amelia. The family was just hanging out in the living room and Frank decided to put a CD in that we bought from China. The songs on the CD are popular children's songs sung in Mandarin.

Well, as soon as he pushed play, Amelia lit up and began doing this dance that she must have learned at the orphanage. I completely broke down. The kids looked at me like I was crazy. It was the most precious thing to see. She remembered the music! How amazing after being home a month. We will definitely keep China and its culture as a part of both Amelia and Hope's lives. Especially after seeing and sharing this moment together it is so important to do so.

Hope that everyone is having a great week!
