We have a daughter!....We're waiting on a son.

Our case worker called this afternoon to say that all went well with our court date (which had been postponed from Monday to Tuesday) for Lem Lem.

So, we have a daughter!

However, one of the documents needed for Bear's paperwork was not in his file and so they'll try again tomorrow. Perhaps tomorrow afternoon, I'll have the good news that we have a son too.

I'll hold off posting pictures until I can do them together. (I know, you can hate me.)

Once I heard the news that I had been made a momma once again, I was suddenly very sad for Lem Lem's first mommy. I just can't fathom how hard a decision it must have been for her to decide that what would be best for her baby girl would be for some else to be her momma. I'm thankful that God has chosen me to be that momma.

So I'm sad and thankful and I'm oh so happy. And I'm hopeful. Hopeful that tomorrow everything will go well for Bear's court proceedings and I'll have good news to report. And pictures!

How wonderful! Congratulations - I can only imagine the whirl of excitement going on in your household.
Some friends of mine with two grown children, just adopted a little girl from China and are awaiting another from Vietnam. They are loving the experience!
