Waiting for Referrals

Reading to Daddy

Hopefully this week will bring with it the newest batch of referrals from China. It should include families logged in on November 3, 2005. Our original travel group should be seeing the faces of their children any day now. Their dossiers, along with ours, were sent to China in late October of 2005 and logged in on November 3, 2005. Had we not decided to adopt a child with special needs, this week would have been our special week, too.
I feel about as nervous and excited for Amy, Gina, and Candi as I did waiting for our call. I can hardly wait to see the sweet faces of Lily, Olivia, and Zoie, and find out what province they are waiting in.

Patriotic Maimie

Last weekend Maimie enjoyed her first Memorial Day weekend. Despite the rain, we honored some of our veterans and included Maimie in one of our family traditions. She rode in the stroller and waved her little flag as we marched up the hill to the cemetery in my old hometown. Then we went to the parade where her big sis and brothers shared some smarties with her. The festivities ended in a cookout at Grandpa and Grandma's house.

"God bless America..."

We were so happy to finally be able to include Maimie in our Memorial Day tradition going up to the cemetery, watching the parade, and ending with a cookout! Sure have been thinking about the three other families who should be hearing any day now about their little girls! Looks like Maimie is very intent on reading to her daddy. I think she must be singing "God Bless America" in the last photo!!
