That is beautiful!! I have been following your
blog since right before you brought Kaitlyn
home. We are waiting for our RA to bring
home Piper who was on the waiting child
list for AWAA. She is now 13 yrs.
She will be our second daughter from China.
We have a 4 yr. old daughter adopted in
10/06 at nineteen months.
I so appreciate your honesty in
all that you have shared.
I am also in a yahoo group for adopted
children 10 and older that has some resources
and info that may be helpful
and encouraging for you. You may have input
that would be encouraging and helpful for
the other families.
We live in Tucson. My blog is

I LOVE this. I believe you have given hope to the hopeless. Praise God your faimly has been obedient even when the call was tough.

Kaitlyn is turning into a beautiful young lady. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story with us. And giveing more hope to those who are either in the process of adopting or thinking about it.

Love you

Tanya - that was amazing. Thank you for sharing. It amazes me how evident the the metal and physical transformations are in just a year.

God has blessed you both with an incredible gift.

Love the video. Today is our Gotcha Day with Charlotte and you were in our original LID group with AWAA. We both switched to Special needs. Something made me think of you guys today, so I searched for your blog and am so glad I did. I am so happy to see you are adapting and that Kaitlyn is starting to trust you. I think you should share your video with AWAA to post on their blog. It would give some insight for families considering older children!
In Him,
