Don't forget that your adopted child had a life before they came into your family.
It seems many adoptive parents have made the mistake of telling the child's life story beginning at "gotcha" day or the day the parents first saw their file.
This came to mind this Christmas as we were decorating the tree. Each of my birth kids were given an ornament to commemorate their first, second and third Christmases.
A search for "Chinese Christmas ornaments" turned up some interesting ideas. But my affection and wallet landed on these sweet ornaments:
They are pretty small, so I used a fine-point permanent marker to write the year and Christmas number on the bead. I'm happy with the results! I hope they will cherish these through the years and be able to reflect on their first two and three years in China.
