Happy Year of the Ox.......

So much good news from Starfish and meeting so many people this past week. Amazing and miraculous.
God is good.

A special shout out to all our little friends entering this new year with their families. Loving and being loved.

Our Lily is heading HOME.....

My Isabel bonded the most with Lily at Starfish. Not sure why. She would make a bee line for her the minute we walked through the doors and would spend a lot of time playing, cuddling and feeding her. She would have liked nothing better than we bring her home with us. We have missed her this past year and hoped and prayed for a home and a family of her very own. Little Danielle in the photo never had that chance and passed away never knowing the love of her own family.

Today I found that our prayers have been answered and Lily will soon be coming to America into the loving arms of a Mommy and Daddy and a big sister. We are beyond happy. More miracles...........and eight left of our gang.

Rose, Jade, Callum, Cailean, Breanna, Caitlyn, Heather and Sean.........hope I got that right.
Keep praying.

Single digits..........nine to go!!!

Look upon this picture and see a true miracle. It is the adoption offices in Xian. It is not my story to tell but it is a wonderful tale and hopefully one day her parents will tell it. This is the very lovely Norma Xian, formerly known as Erica. A quiet girl who waited patiently and dreamily for her parents to take her home to New York. They worked feverishly and determinedly to make her their own. Not because they wanted a baby, they lead a pretty charmed life and are happy people, but because they met her and fell in love. It was always and always will be their darling girl Norma. Just a simple thing. Just love.
I knew you would do it guys.......I think you are a pretty special family in so many ways.

I am so excited......again.

Today is the day..if not mistaken.....that Rebecca meets her family. It will be a tough transition for her given her age but I know
she will settle and her glorious new life will begin. Best part is I found her family blog and I can watch it all unfold. That to me is priceless. More adoptions coming down the pike. I need to review and give you all the new number. Will do soon.
