The Excellence of Love

Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish, not quick to take offense.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things
that last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4

Ila made the perfect Valentine date since Scott is in Los Angeles. We went to dance class, had lunch with Grandma and rode the merry go round at the Mall of America. Ila wore her t-shirt that says "love" in Chinese. We had such a great day! She is the sunshine of my life, my peanut, my Ila Marie -- and I couldn't love her more. The other day she asked why pictures of her baby sister's room were on the computer and there wasn't one of hers...here's my response:

We are really missing Ya-Ya and just found out that we most likely won't be getting an update on her this month. With Chinese New Year happening, it looks like updates won't go out until March. We are so bummed! We picked out a special teddy bear for her today and will be shipping a care package to her soon. The good news is that our dossier was sent to Taiwan on February 1st! Yippee!! TECO is done. Legal paperwork is done. So now we are literally just waiting for some news... February isn't the best month to be bored in Minnesota especially with temps below zero. We may have to plan a vacation to help pass the time!

Peace, Lani
