Happy Birthday Sweet Arianna!

Today is Arianna's 10th birthday. It is a very important birthday, this is the first year of her life that she is in the double digits, and this is also the first birthday that she has a family waiting for her. Even though we can't be with her we are thinking about her all of the time. I hope it is a good birthday for her.

New Pictures!!

I am very excited to share the new pictures that we recived today. The pictures were taken in the last week. I just want to sit and stare at them for the longest time. Arianna is sooo cute! I can tell that she has lots of personality and she looks happy and well cared for. I am so glad to see these new pictures.

Adoption update

So the reason that I have been so busy lately is that we have finally sent our dossier to our agency. We should be DTC (dossier to China) by the end of the month. YAY!!!! After we are LID (logged in date) we should be able to travel about three months later. So, we are looking at May-June to travel to China.

All about Alenna....

Were do I start? Alenna has taught me so much as a person and as a mom. To say that I am in awe of her would be an understatment. From the very first moment that we met each other she has welcomed me into her heart with open arms. She has been through so much hardship in her short life, but yet she is the most trusting and loving child. Just the other day she came up to me and put her arms around be and said "I wub you mommy" I was just a puddle on the floor. She is so full of life and personality. When Alenna is around you know it! Life will never be boring or quite with Alenna in it. She loves her friends and rejoyces over the simplest things. Her current favorite thing is Misson Friends at our church. Every week she asks me if she gets to go to Misson Friends again, and when I say yes, she goes "hurray"! I feel so blessed to be her mom.

All about Arianna....

What we know about our new daughter is that she likes school, treats her friends like sisters, she very excited to be adopted and is very pretty. We don't know much about her yet, but I am so looking forward to getting to know her and to know what her personality is like.


Sorry it's been so long since I have posted! I have been pretty busy lately but I will tell you about that later. Now it is time to finish my posts all about my kiddos.
