Last Friday night, November 16th, 2007 I went to a local Church to listen to an amazing testimony by a Mother and her Daughter, now a senior at a local high school (who happened to be adopted from China.) They both talked about their experiences, their family and their love for God. The women's husband was their video taping their talk and
their other daughter was not their.
Anyways their story moved me. I could not help but cry at certain points during their speech.
I was especially moved when Kali (the high school senior) talked about her life and being adopted. She also shared her faith. It was so nice to listen to an adoptee who has had a positive experience with her adoption. These two women were truly inspirational.
Their missionary friends have written a book about them as they were the first to take care of Kali after she was found in China. Here is a link to their book. Their story is true but some names have been changed to protect people.
I purchased it that night for Simone and
Kali signed it for her and wrote her a little message. It went like this:
Prov. 3:5-6
"I hope through this book,
you will learn more about God's
great love and faithfulness." Kali Jane

So here is what the CCAA web site said today, "The CCAA has finished the placement of children for the families whose adoption application documents were registered with our office before December 8, 2005."

What does this mean for us? Well the are getting one step closer to finishing 2005!!!!!!!! They did 8 days worth of referrals which is good but I also have heard that their are fewer families with a LID of December 2005. It does not matter to me though. I just can't wait until they turn that web site to January of 2006!

One day a week we receive a "Home Link Letter" from Simones preschool that is all about her and what their focus was for the week. For the first time the area that said "sharing news" was marked and the teacher wrote in there that Simone shared about her Sister and she wrote a smiley face next to it.............I can't wait to talk to her teachers tomorrow to find out what she said? I will post more about this later.

Sophie we are praying for you every day and with God's Timing you will have a forever family with a Mommy, Daddy, Sister, A Dog Named Lew, Family and lots of Friends! We can't wait to hold you and give you lots of hugs and kisses!
