Update! Update! Update!

Friday morning started out as any other, the boys had eaten breakfast and were working on their first assignments of the day. On a whim I decided to check my email, and to my great pleasure I saw one from our social worker with the subject line “Updates!”. In the email we received a few updated pictures, a video clip, and answers to all the questions we asked! AKA, adoption update gold, oil, or what have you! None of it is guaranteed, in fact, we were warned not to get our hopes up on getting any response at all! We were given a precious gift, to see her sweet sweet face considering her circumstances, did my heart good!

It’s been a blah last couple of weeks. I try not to complain about the wait (too often), I try to keep going like it’s totally normal to have your baby on the other end if the earth, but sometimes it just stinks. As I told my friend Erica (also adopting), everything gets to stinkin’ when things are stagnant for too long. God knew what I needed, in the past 2 days not only did I get information on my daughter but I also received an amazing sneak peek at one of the pictures my friend took on a shoot she did with my boys the other day. I absolutely adore the photo!  Feeling rejuvenated now and capable of waiting on the next step. How I love you, Miss Susan Elizabeth!!

Touch the Sky is working to support the adoption of a girl who was previously advocated by the name Tamarix. She is a bright, beautiful 12 year old little girl from Xi'an China who is deaf. She loves to draw and the orphanage director says she often draws picture of a family. She very much wants to be adopted and wants a family desperately.  Go to their page to learn how you can donate or buy a t-shirt/tote bag to support a grant that will allow a family to bring her home.
