Welcome Home Baby Lily!!!

Last Friday evening Hannah and I headed to the airport with many friends to celebrate the homecoming of sweet baby Lily!  Hannah with Lily poster - Copy

After their file being logged in China for more than 7 1/2 years (!!!) D and S finally received their referral call a couple of months ago and excitedly prepared to head to China to welcome home their sweet daughter! 

It was a wonderful treat to go to the airport and welcome home their sweet daughter L!


Although D & S’s file went to China only 8 months after mine, they have waited an additional long 4 1/2 years for their log-in-date to be reached.  I ask you to please pray for those many, many families who are still waiting for their children and many others who have made the agonizing choice not to continue with their adoption due to long, uncertain wait.  Others have had the decision made for them by unfair agencies and government ‘rules’ which breaks my heart!  Please pray for all of these precious families, many who still have a part of their heart in China regardless of the state of their adoption.  Thank you!

Check out that precious smile!  IMG_4530

Hannah took a shine to sweet L and stood so still when she played with her bows.  IMG_4546

We asked the kids to ‘stay in the circle’ as a good example to baby L and it was so neat to watch them play with their new ‘cousin’.   There is a group of 6 families who met many years ago as we were all waiting to become parents and the friendship we share is a cherished and precious one and feels very much like a selected family.  Oh how we love each and every one of them!!!IMG_4535

A family complete! Congratulations D and S!!!  We love you and are so happy for you!


  1. These waits are heartbreaking! I'm so glad Lily is finally home.
