Another of my online friends received a photo of her beautiful daughter, who is now waiting to meet her in China! I used an image from her blog (the top transparent image of a daffodil leaning over in the snow) as part of the design and basis for the poem.
My name is Ashley, actually. I'm a wife and mom, back to work full time at a wonderful public library. I enjoy graphic design projects, and I love to read, mostly juvenile fiction and poetry. My first-born daughter is a creative, lively junior high student. My husband is a great dad, who left full time youth ministry to be a stay-at-home dad for a couple of years before going back to work part time at an adoption agency. We met our second daughter, Hannah Li, in China on Christmas Eve 2006 and adopted her during an amazing trip. We met our baby boy Will the night he was born summer of 2008 and adopted him later that fall. I hope someday to write a children's book.
