Happy Family Day #3

My post on Adoption Day....Sep 1, 2008

SHE IS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!
 She is funny, laughs A LOT! Is a complete SHOW OFF in the restaurant and wants ALL eyes on her! I have no idea where she got the idea of "being a ham" comments! LOL!
She found the mirror and loves it! She sleeps just like her mom....all over the bed! She also found Vietnamese cartoons on TV and yelled at them forever!!! Everyone loves on her when we are out! They all say "BIG EYES"! She is just amazing!!! I can't begin to describe... God has revealed HIS perfect plan! She is OUR DAUGHTER and He has always known exactly when, where & how he would bring us together!

Happy Adoption Day Halle-Grace!

Hours Away...

Wow, what a night...Who would have thought Shannon would have slept so well and I was the one up all night. So many things even within the wee hours of the morning have transpired. We even just got off the phone with Michelle Bond from State Department who wished us well and congratulated us on our tiny miracle.She said she feels we have done everything we could have done to answer the RFEs. I took from that it is simply now a matter of time to get our approvals.
There are so many things I want to say that I will keep this brief and add when we return this evening. Currently I am afraid of shorting out the computer as I type a few words and then dry my eyes, type a few words and wipe my nose.
We are going to get our daughter...even now, saying and typing the words seems surreal. It has been way too long in coming. But nothing worth having comes easy, and nothing in this world is worth more than "our tiny miracle." I pray I will bless her in her life half as much as she has already blessed me...and I have yet to hear her for the first time say, "I love you daddy!" Wow, talk about melting a heart. It is already a molten pile of goo...
More to come later today. For now, thanks for the emails, thoughts and prayers. God bless you all. We love you!

3 years ago...our lives were changed forever in TQ Vietnam

3 years ago, we were in Vietnam...scared to death, in complete culture shock...but all of those feelings were completely vanished when we held our tiny miracle for the first time!
