Sophi's Song

Today in the car Sophi  was singing made-up songs with made-up tunes.  Imagine her singing her little heart out with a melody that wanders all over the place without realizing she had an audience:

It's OK that I don't have any arms
Because I am fabulous
And high fashion
Like Jesi.

And when I grow up, I think I will have three kids
Not 100,000 kids.
Because that is too many to take care of and to feed.
Actually, maybe I will have four or five or even eight, 
but not one hundred thousand.
Cuz' that will be too many.


Conner Part Two

I just wanted to add my thoughts and feelings to Christi's post from yesterday.  It has been such a difficult past few months with regard to Conner.  The uncertainty we have felt has been so different from all of our other adoptions.  A large part of this uncertainty has been focused around what Conner would want.  Would he really want to start his life all over with a new family, a new culture, a new language and a new home?  It was such a beautiful experience for me to view his two short videos yesterday.  To hear him say himself that he wanted to be adopted and to have a mom and a dad!  And to have him say it with such a beautiful and genuine smile!  It erased any final doubts I had.  I am SO excited to go get this young man and bring him home!  We love you Conner!  See you soon:)
