and heard the story and saw their video I knew that they needed to be together. They had grown up in their orphanage together. They were sisters. Maybe not biological, but still sisters.
I asked my agency if it was possible to adopt both of them. They told me that China would not allow the adoption of two healthy 6 year olds.
So I decided that I would try to find the family that would adopt Lyla and try to keep in touch.
As it turns out they live in Arkansas and they are the perfect family for Lyla.
Lily and Lyla were adopted in February 2010.
Last August, 2010, Lily and I flew to Arkansas to meet Lyla's family.
Then in December 2010 Lyla and her mom flew out to California to spend time with us.
Last week for the 4th of July week Lyla, her Mom and Dad and her awesome brother Liem came to California to spend time with us. I am so happy that we have been able to keep these two in touch with each other.
Friends and Sisters
We miss you!
