Sorry for the shortage of blog posts, but it has been a crazy busy last 2 weeks around the Forever Home!
Shawna had her 14th birthday on the 5th. She's "too old" for all the hoopla of childish birthdays, so she requested we not do the decorations and candles. Though she also thought it too much to sing happy birthday, we decided her birthday couldn't pass by without at least one happy birthday song. She requested an ice-cream cake for her birthday this year.
As tradition in China dictates, here she is cutting her birthday cake and serving her guests.
She received some of her favorite snacks--spicy bamboo and spicy mushrooms--to celebrate her special day.
