Ahhhhhhh-Day 6

We were able to visit our girl two times today!!  I will say that today has been a really great day.  We have had alright days and a couple really bad days, but this day has been awesome!

We were able to see her from 10:30 until  11:30 this morning and 2:30-4 this afternoon.  I think she likes me.  I may be just hoping and praying for that, but when we lay her on the floor, she scoots around until she's in front of me then she'll reach out to me.  In my mind, of course, this means we have bonded and life is good.  The fact that she'll often do this for Erin is besides the point.  Erin also said it seemed she likes me.  Again, my brain took this and ran with it!

We were also able to receive a wonderful gift.  Take a look:

I promise it was innocent enough.  I was just rubbing on her leg and she started grinning and then giggling!  So, we turned on the camera and tried again.  And she did it again!  I kept telling her thank you, thank you.  What a treasure.

Look at that face!
We were also able to see the kids on the webcam and that was wonderful.  I love hearing their voices and answering their questions.  They are so excited to have us bring Alice home.  I love that.  They all looked healthy and we heard that one of the littles had broken something.  We finally got it out of the older ones what it was.  Yep.  That one is gonna cost us when we get home.  We are very blessed to have family taking care of our babies and bigs.

My niece also told me that a co-worker of hers is going to donate 2 years worth of baby girl clothes to little Alice.  How wonderful is that?  The Lord is providing yet again!

Thank you to all of those who have helped us get here.  We know that without that, we wouldn't be here.  Thank you.

We are blessed to be able to see a 3D image of our adoption into the family of Christ.  During this process I have felt stretched to the end of myself.  And just about that moment, the Lord has sustained me and lifted me up.  That smile in that picture was worth all that we've done.  What a gift.
