Today is our 1 year anniversary for our LID (Log In Date, which means the date our paperwork was logged in to China). I cannot believe it has been a year. It has gone by so quickly!!

I just wonder if Izabella has been born or is close to to it and I think about the mother who has to give her up. How hard would that be?? I know how hard 3 miscarriages have been, and I cannot imagine the pain of carrying a child full term and holding her in your arms and being forced to abandon her!! Anyhow, little does she know, we already love her, pray for her, want her and have more things than she will ever possibly need!! She is Blessed and doesn't even know it!!

With that said, I pray that this is a magical year!!

Hope, Hang in there.

Riz and I are right there with you. We have more time in back of us then in front of us. We will see our girls faces this year. I just know it will happen for us.

I am glad I found your blog (again). My dh and our daughters met your parents and grandmother a few months ago on a Sunday after church. They were so sweet! I can't wait to follow your journey.

I pray for you and Scott each day that this will be your magical year.
we love you and we love Izabella and pray for her and her safety during this time, until you shall meet each other.
God is good and in his time he has prepared for you, he will give you patience, till you go meet your daughter (daughters).
