Oh the joy!

I was watching Sofia's video of her homecoming, its one of my favorites! Sofia is so close in age to Makayla, that I know its going to be a lot the same for us! I just cried this morning when I watched it. Soon that will be us. Family and friends with signs waiting for us at the airport. My boys running up to us, barely able to contain their excitement! She will be passed between them. There will probably be fighting about who gets to hold her first.

And suddenly this lonely orphan is surrounded by people who all want to love her! Oh I just can't wait. I can't wait to see what she looks like. Her picture is of her at only a couple of months old. She will be a year in a few short weeks. I know she is going to look so different. I can't wait to see what color those big eyes have turned to. Are they still blue, maybe brighter! Oh, its like being pregnant for 12 months!!
Our yard sale fundraiser is next Saturday. We still need some supplies for the lunch, and we can always use more stuff to sell! Any donation made to the chipin will go to help us buy the food for lunch. Come on, we are almost there, this is our last fundraiser. Lets make it great!


  1. I just found a couple more pictures of baby Sophia on a Russian orphan database! I'm going to do a post on her soon :)

  2. I can't wait to see your homecoming video with Makayla!
