Happy 7th Birthday Li Lin!

Our dear Li Lin turned 7 today.  Hard to believe she is getting so big! Her enthusiasm and joy of life are contagious and there is never a dull moment with her around!

Over the last year, birthdays have taken a pretty big back seat given our preoccupation with Jadon in the hospital.  Li Lin was excited to be able to have a party this year with some of her friends.  We had Jasmine (her current favourite princess) drop in to sing some songs, do dress-up and play games with the party girls.  Li Lin had a great time!

Today, on her birthday, we picked up a beautiful cake that had been baked for her through "Icing Smiles", a charity that coordinates volunteers that bake amazing cakes for children and siblings affected by long-term illnesses and hospital stays.  This amazing baker even provided some sparklers for candles.
