Jacob's letter

Dear Saidie,
I can't wait to meet you.  Your picture is so cute and your smile is so friendly.  I am already an older brother to Joe and Maimie, so I am ready for you.  It didn't take long to teach Maimie how to play video games or get her excited about Star Trek, so I don't think it will take long for you either.  I want to help you learn to speak like us (though that isn't always a good thing).
You won't have trouble fitting in here.  There's always Maimie and numerous other out-of-country adoptees.  Just trust God and know that through thick and thin, He will always love you.  I will try to model that in my relationship with you, but will sometimes fall short. (That's my spiel.)

(your new brother)

Jacob also wrote a letter to Maimie before we traveled to meet her.  To read Jacob's letter to Maimie, click here.

Love reading the letters from the siblings! Jacob is a very loving caring young man and has been really good with Maimie and know he will be with Saidie also! She will definitely have to like video games and Star Trek. Know she will love the movie nights with the kids!
In Christian Love,
