Dolls for Lily Rose

I went a little e-bay crazy. I won all these dolls for Lily Rose. I couldn't help myself. I actually have 2 more that just came in, but they are at my cousins house. I think I have enough for now. My son was really not happy that I won all these dolls for his little sister and nothing for him, so of course I had to do a little more bidding and I got some stuff for him too. Now everyone is happy. The things we do for our kids.

Our Wedding Picture

This was a test to see if i could post a picture. Well this was our wedding day. Nov. 13, 2004. My son Joseph looked so handsome that day. I can't believe it's almost 2 years ago already. Time sure does fly.

A red thread to China was cast today from us to a child so far away. This thread symbolizes an attachment of hearts, that distance alone can't keep us apart. This tiny, thin thread may stretch, tangle or fray, but our love for her grows stronger each day. Through the test of time it won't break or sever, she'll be a part of us forever and ever. So for now we'll just love her and pray everyday that God keeps her and loves her for us till we may travel to China, that land of great past, to the side of our daughter, to hold her at last.

USCIS Fingerprint Date

As I was leaving to go up to my son's school for his Spring Party today, the mail came early. It never comes early. As I was looking through I came across the envelope from USCIS. In it was the date for our fingerprints. April 19th 2006. I was jumping up and down like a little kid and my mother who lives downstairs from us came running up the stairs and the look on her face was priceless. But after I told her that we had the date, she started jumping up and down too. It was a great site to see since she just had an operation. Then I called my husband and thank god he didn't start jumping at work. lol So needless to say we are a very HAPPY family today. I also sent out to all my family and friends our "100 Good Wishes" letter. So that is very exciting too.

1st Post

I hope this works. I am so new to this. I have looked at some beautiful blogs. I can't believe some of them. I hope mine will be just as beautiful one day. This is such an exciting journey. I always hoped that I would get to this point in my life. Thank God for my wonderful husband and my beautiful, funny, loving son. They are so happy about this adoption as is most of my family and friends. Although it is a long and hard journey it will be so worth it when Lily Rose comes home. Every morning when I wake up I wish it was the day we leave to bring her home. But, that will not be until next year. My God, next year! How will I survive. With the help of all my family and friends. But most of all with the help of my husband and son. Until next time.....
