That was fun and interesting! I think when you're going through it yourself you're so overwhelmed you don't know what is going on.Happy Easter!
Wow, kudo's to the Chinese nanny, she was wonderful!!! She clearly made the transition much easier! Sara (mom to 4 from China).
This had me in tears again. That was my favorite song during our adoption (Steven Curtis Chapman). Hope Jillian had a wonderful first Easter with her forever family!Hugs,SharonAZ
It's hard to see the terror that is in so many kids faces as we fulfill the "gotcha day" we've worked so hard to make happen. But knowing the longterm change makes this temporary trauma worth it. I love the look of concern on your other girls faces. So precious!!Knowing how far she's come in such a short time has to be satisfying for you as your family reviews this.God bless,The Carr Family
I'm over here from RQ and followed along with your China travels this last trip. I just watched your dtr's adoption video with tears streaming down my face. Our son's first adoption process was disrupted but we didn't learn that until once we were home. I must say that I had protective reactions even beforehand but once I learned about the disruption something clicked inside of me and I am even more mindful of the stress he has experienced in his short life. I could just see the terror in your dtr's face as the nanny was explaining to her what was going on. How can something so beautiful be so painful at the same time?! So happy that things are going so well for your beautiful family now. May we always be mindful of our children's beginnings whether in the first moments of when we met or years down the road. Thanks for sharing your story as I am sure it has inspired many, including myself.
