Bitter and Sweet

This is an incredible time in the lives of some adoptive Moms I know. Island Boy and Jet were welcomed home just a couple of weeks ago, Tiffany returned from Taiwan on Thanksgiving Day with her beautiful Sophia and Judy FINALLY was able to take home her little man, Eric. Congratulations to all of the families!

There are other families in the SLC group we've been fortunate to get to know a little bit. Although we feel lucky that most of our kids are together, it's time to get them home. Some of the families have gotten NO news since May and that is JUST PLAIN WRONG. Come home Samantha, Jeremiah, Joshua, Odin, Zane, Kimi, and Lucy.

Here are some photos Judy took Monday when she went to pick up her son. Thanks once again, Judy!

Looks like someone wants to walk. Stay tuned for the video...coming soon.

She looks pretty proud of herself. Don't grow up too fast, little girl! At least wait til you're home with us before you take off running.

Does this girl know how to pose or what?

Eric says "bye bye"... for now.

Jackie, she just has the sweetest face. Every time I see her I just want to melt into a puddle!! She's beautiful.

I agree - it is more than time for these children to be home with their families. Why their mommies and daddies have heard nothing since May is beyond me! I am praying today for good news for all of them.

Can you tell how much love these kids are getting? Answer: Lots! However, not nearly as much as Lucy and friends will get when they come home. Hope it goes quickly!

She is so precious Jackie! And she already has knows how to give that sweet look to melt you. Watch out, she will be a heartbreaker :) Hoping and praying she comes home to you soon.

I hope you noticed that the photo album you sent is in Lucy's crib. I can't remembe if i took a picture of her holding it. I showed the photos to her and told her "mommy,daddy, gur gur (older brothers)". Hope you get words for the ruling soon.
