Thank You Chuck and Jean Anne


Today, we were thrilled to see another picture of our baby girl. Thanks to Chuck and Jean Anne for picking up this baby girl, not knowing that she'd end up with us, and lovin' on her and taking this photo.

This adoption process has been such a learning experience. Along the way, I've read the comments and experiences of others, and wondered...will I feel that too? Indeed, I don't understand how it happened, but I can tell you...I have officially fallen in love with a picture. We have all fallen in love with a little girl. A baby girl, around the world, who needs us as much as we need her. And that is cool...very, very cool.

I have to agree! What a doll! She's sooo tiny I wouldn't know what to do. The good Lord knew to send me to Micaela. She looks giagantic compared to your little one. How neat to receive a new picture! Especially in someone's loving arms.....
