Last night we were able to skype with Cali again.  Let me just tell you, I am in love.  This girl is so, so sweet.  And beautiful.  It has been such a blessing to be able to skype with her.  We've never had this opportunity with any of our other adoptions, and it has made a huge difference in how bonded we already feel.  Last night Jeremy asked Cali (all through a translator) if she was nervous about being adopted and she said that she wasn't.  The translator (her teacher) then explained that Cali had been very nervous prior to the first time we skyped with her, but after skyping told her that she knew that we loved her very much and that she wasn't nervous anymore.  What a blessing that she could spend the next several months being excited rather than scared, all because of skype!

Cali is just so sweet.  Have I mentioned that?  (:   You can sense that she has a very special spirit.  I am just dying to get her here with us-- we all are!  My heart was so full as we all sat on the bed skyping.  She simply belongs.

As a bonus, I received a few pictures of her celebrating Children's Day.  She was the emcee for a program put on by the orphanage.  Enjoy!

PS. Still no word on Conner, but we have no reason to think that there's anything wrong-- we've just been told that his paperwork will take quite some time to process.  Still praying!


  1. How amazing! The world is truly smaller thanks to technology. I am so happy that she no longer has to be scared and can spend the next months excited to join all those brothers and sisters!

  2. She is beautiful! How amazing to be able to speak with her ahead of time.

  3. Yep, she's a Green alright...positively perfect in every way!
