The Dream...

Last night I had the first dream about Ashley that I actually saw her face. She was being handed to us and screaming her head off! She was about 2 years old, and she had really chubby cheeks that were really pink from the crying. In the dream I was crying, too and we were with friends who were adopting an older Chinese girl. We were calling her her given name and it had something like "Bi" (B-EE) in it. I'm just recording this in case this date is significant and the Lord put her in my dream for a reason. We'll see!

One of those days...

I just want her home. Yesterday. I hate the waiting and the paperwork and the waiting some more. I just want her home. We have so far to go but I try to remind myself that it pales in comparison to the time we'll have with her for the rest of her life. Some days that works and some days it doesn't and today was one of those days. We're coming, baby!!! We're trying to get there as fast as we possibly can, I promise we are! Ally says she has a baby in her tummy and she's from are in all of our hearts, even your 3 year old sister!
