I have also worn this Jade pendant for the last year. It has the Chinese word happiness in silver in the center. I will clean it up now and I will only wear it occasionally as it is our intent to let Wade have it to give his bride on their wedding day. It is traditional for Chinese grooms to give Jade to their brides. I hope it will be special to her that we got it on our trip to bring him home.
We celebrated tonight by getting some dumplings and sticky rice at the Thai place in Elkin. I know it's not Chinese but close enough.
It's been a wonderful first year. It has been fun watching his personality take shape and our bond grow ever deeper. We love you Wade Michael.
