Babies Babies Babies

First off, I would like to introduce you to my new friends. I mentioned them a few days ago. Their daughter was a patient of mine? Miss Salem is from Ethiopia and you can read about her here! This family has continued to bless me with such sweet comments on this blog. We keep finding things we have in common. Another story was that Keely (Salem's mommy) told me that Leslie R said hello. Mind you that Keely and her family live in Orlando, Fl. Leslie R and her family live here in Atlanta. Leslie's daughter was a patient of mine who passed away earlier this year. If you have read my personal blog, you may remember me mentioning her. Anyway, apparently Leslie and Keely have been friends for years..Its a small world, after all.

Well its that time again. Many families are seeing their families for the very first time. Agencies started making phone calls today and send pictures.
For my family and friends who are just learning about this process, once your agency gets the information its translated. You soon receive "THE CALL" where you learn a lot of info of your child. Then you get a picture, and wait on travel approval. The day we get "the call" will be a day of celebration.

Please and stop by and see these families who just saw their precious child for first time!
Michael and I will be getting the same information one day. How exciting is that?

I don't know if you know Terri at 'Our Whole World in His Hands', but she is a wonderful Christian woman and she has a referral for her daughter.
Congratulations to all of the new families!
Thank goodness I know someone who got a referral, it keeps me going.
