9 Little Miracles
So, this is our little lineup. A whole bench of little miracles. You will want to click on it and see those little faces up close. All but the adorable little one on the left end(my friend Steph's little girl, AnnaLynl) are all little girls from Eliana's same SWI and all 8 of their families traveled to China together to get these precious ones. We had a wonderful time together. There is something about experiencing adoption together from the very beginning that binds people together. We all are attached to eachother's girls and though we are all from different areas of the U.S. and don't share everyday life together we are truly attached to eachother. One of the most interesting things on the personal side is how much my normally snobbing little Ellie just LOVED these folks. It was like she was beginning to grasp things. We watched our gotcha day video as a group and she kept yelling "Myna" for China. Davie would often say, "all the little China girls can come this way..." It was such a blessing to be able to share this with our girls and all the wonderful folks in our travel group. I would pray for anyone traveling to China to be blessed with a group like ours. Precious precious people. Well, we stayed busy and of course there are tons more photos to share, but honestly I am sick as a dog. I went to a walk in clinic today to have them tell me that I have double ear infections, with a blister on one eardrum, a horrendously sore throat and a major cough with phylm....I know...TMI. They gave me drugs or rather I paid the big bucks for some drugs and I'm hoping to feel better in the a.m. So, say a prayer for me :) and have a great week. Love, JS p.s. I am missing my small group tonight and thinking of ya'll as you go through the book of Ruth. I'd call ya'll to share in the fun but I have also lost my voice...got a shot in the bootie to help with that :) How's that for tmi? Love you ladies to pieces!
