In my home, a little girl waits to meet her new sister. And while she waits, she writes this poem.
From your sister Lauren
Lily's smile stretches wide
From one cheek to the other side.
It glows, she beams! She laughs so long.
She smiles as she sings a Chinese song!
Her voice is lovely like a dove,
Given from our God with love.
She sings and laughs and smiles with care
She makes people smile everywhere.
Her name Lily Claire Pingli
Is special for her and special to me
To her "Lily" means "love and favor"
To me "Lily" means "my sister forever."
Lily's wonderful, amazing, and smart.
She's lovely, true, and sweet at heart.
She's gorgeous, precious, pretty, plus
She's going to come and live with us!
