New Photo!


I just had to share this updated photo of our sweet girl.  Our agency speculates it was taken last Friday (10-16).  She is still only at or under the 10th percentile in many areas of growth.  I must confess that when I first saw this photo I got worried for Lucy.  She just looks so thin compared to her earlier pictures.  Brian has reassured me that as soon as she gets home he will be plumping her up with a steady diet of baby food and weight lifting :) I have to continue to trust that God is protecting her and will bring her home soon. 

I have joined this wonderful Yahoo group full of other families who have adopted their daughters from the same orphanage as Lucy.  I have gained some priceless information, including the fact that it is quite possible that Lucy is in foster care and not actually at this orphanage.  China likes to keep lots of things secretive, so it is hard to know.  But it appears that this is one institution that has an abundance of foster parents helping out with the girls.  If this is the case we would be ecstatic!  This would mean that she is receiving much more individualized attention.

We anticipate that the CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs) will receive our acceptance letters next Monday.  It will then be 6-8 weeks from this date that we should travel.  I will keep you posted...
