Geneva, pictured with Marli, who was born in Vietnam
"This picture was taken when we met our second child, Marli, in Vietnam. It was October of 2007. I had so much happiness in my heart to finally be holding her, touching her. We arrived back in the U.S. with our daughter on November 1, 2007. Marli will soon turn 6, and she is such a joy – everything I imagined a daughter would be and more. We love you Marli!"
