This is our story....of love, life, and adoption

I wished for you

WE HAVE TICKETS!!!! I can't believe that in a few short weeks we will be on a plane to our sweet baby girl.

Been super busy trying to get it all together. I can't seem to think very straight right now. My stomach is in a perpetual state of disarray. When I am very stressed or nervous all I want to do is sleep which is pretty counterproductive to prepartions. Jon on the other hand seems to go into super sonic mode. Again opposites, but that's another story. Looks like miss Jannalee has been a busy bee. She sent Claire this wonderul adoption storybook which made me bawl like a little girl. Then she wrote something soo soo sweet on the inside which started it all again. Then she sent clothes and We are so Thankful.

Since our baby shower had to be moved until Claire is home and we didn't buy a whole lot at everyone's insistence, we are a bit unprepared for her arrival. So the parents have kicked into high gear. Love them!! Jon's Mom went and got her bedding. Isn't it soo pretty. I love it. Thank you. She also went and got an umbrella stroller to use in Taiwan, the highchair, and some sleepers. Have I said Thank GOD for parents. My parents are taking us out this coming weekend to round out the neccesities.

We are truly blessed by those around us. And Claire is going to be one spoiled little sweetheart!!
Another family the Furbers, are in Taiwan right now picking up their son. They are with the same agency as we are and their son is/was at the same orphange at Claire. I am sooo happy for them!

Hope you can keep us updated when you are over there getting your daughter.
She is going to love her new home and mommy and daddy for sure.
