Happy 10th Birthday

Thanking God for this little Chinese Girl!  
So blessed to have her in my life. 

 Looking forward to learning about those first ten years and spending the next 10Xforever with my Evie.

We are going with 10 years old.  At least for now.  Who knows . . . we never really will know?

I am going to guess that my daughter has never had a birthday party or present or cake.  Probably never in her life.

I always ponder my boys births on the eve of their birthday.  Such precious memories.  I love thinking about those sweet baby boys.  Their smell and little feet, soft skin and tiny hands.  LOVE!

The girls it is different because I was not there.  I have NO idea how it all went.  Were they born in a hospital?  Probably not, but I don't know.  Who was at the birth?  Was it hidden?  Was the decision made to give them up before or after their birth . . . so many questions.  So on this eve of Evelyn's birth I imagine . . .

Tonight I think of Evelyns birth mom.  I bet she thinks of her around her birthday (probably everyday)  but I can't imagine not knowing where my baby was and if she was O.K.  I would give so much to let her know that our daughter is loved and cherished and being cared for.  Our daughter . . . what a crazy thing to say.

Yep look at OUR beautiful daughter.

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!  a thousand times more for giving this girl life.  I bet she gets her big ol'  smile from you.

Missing China

Tonight we called China mom.  I so wish I had the slightest clue as to what was said.  They talked for about a half hour then she wanted to call China mom #2.  They talked for about a half hour.  Thank God for calling cards.  

Things seemed to have gone well.

"mom . . . tomorrow take Naomi and Than  school and go car go China"  So sorry sweet girl but we must take a airplane to China.  

Bless her sweet little heart.  I can only imagine how homesick she must feel.  

Probably time for some good Chinese food.

How in the heck did I end up with one of these hanging in my car????  Who woulda thunk??  Not I!  

Evelyn's interpretation "mommy car red go potty  then  blue go potty (pointing outside) "  Seriously with her cute little Chinese accent  . . . this girl makes me smile BIG!

I begged and bribed and got my first born and most recent babies to go for a walk with me today.

We stopped at the park along the way.

We are almost home.

Notice the little sister intently asking big brother for a little favor or maybe a big favor depending on who your asking.

Yep! she got his music and rocked the headphones.

and would not give em back.
