Just for you Donna
Ok, lots more pics coming and I was hoping to do a slideshow but Donna is pretty persistent so here are a few to tide you over until I can get what I want done.
Today we spent the afternoon at Swallows Nest, visiting the lady who cares for special needs orphans and has spent so much time with Chun Ai. She was wonderful and we were able to visit both foster homes and experience life at the nest. It was very emotional and Michael described his feelings over at his site http://www.valtool.blogspot.com/
More on that emotional visit later but we were able to visit and play with the kids and it was AMAZING. This has been the most moving trip of my life!!!
So how is LynnMarie you might ask? She is funny, loved and predictable. She smiles at all funny noises and faces, goes to sleep right after a bottle and only cries when she is tired or if her parents don't feed her formula for several hours. She and I have had several deep conversations about the future and we both agree we were made for each other. I have been singing to her and so far I know she doesn't care for Backstreet Boys but she does like Barry Manilows "Mandy. She does giggle at Kenny Rogers " The Gambler" since for some reason I know all the words to that. Ive also gone back to singing some old songs like " Seek Ye First" and "jesus loves the little children". Her belly and feet also have songs which if you know me, won't surprise you at all. We gave her a good bath tonight in the sink as the past few nights we have been washing with those pre-soaped mitten things. Kim, greatest idea ever.
China is different that what I thought it would be. LynnMarie is our daughter and we know that God gave her a wonderful story. God even showed up at Swallows Nest today.
We are soooo in love. Michael is an awesome dad. He has changed a few diapers, lots of feedings and gets up when she cries..No worries about Michael. He is smitten and is sooo proud of his little girl. We promise lots more pics coming.
We just cant find any diet coke in this city..Crazy!!!
