Happy Mother's Day to Me!!!

Our agency told me updates were possible, but they didn't have any control over them. It was up to her orphanage in China. And while I did receive an update showing she had gained a 1/2 pound in the last few months and lost 1 cm of height, I wanted pictures. The weight and height information was nice, but not enough.

Yesterday I received a gift. A PRICELESS GIFT!!! Through a yahoo group I made a connection with two other mommas whose children live in the same foster home as Suhn. And I found out, the foster home HAS A BLOG!

A BLOG ON WHICH I FOUND OVER 50 PICTURES OF MY SWEET LITTLE GIRL!

Pictures of her at a Christmas party, at the zoo, being loved on by her therapist (a person who shows up in many of the pictures who I would LOVE to meet!).
I spent hours going through all 61 pages of blog saving every picture I could find. I found the post sharing that she had a family who would be coming for her in 3-6 months. I found posts commenting on her beautiful eyes. I found posts proving that she is loved and will be missed when she leaves. I discovered new details about her history and the progress she was made with her disability.

Of course I have to share a few, to show off my little girl, my precious gift!
















Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

These pictures make me weep, Megan. Oh my goodness. She is precious...and she's in the palm of God's hand today, right now, as she gets ready to meet you and become a part of your family. Just so overwhelming when you think about it...and incredible.

Such grace.
