Mother Meets Child...A Heartwrenching Account.

I have been having an incredible experience this week and I can't keep it to myself. Do yourself an amazing favor and read Lynn's day by day account of what is happening to her right now in China as she is creating a relationship with her daughter Olivia. Start at the very first post and do not stop. Grab a box of kleenex. Lynn's ability to put the emotions into writing is just so amazing. Every night I have to read her latest post. I know that one day I will be in her shoes . One day I will be with my Sophia and will face this transition with her. I am really just in complete awe.

Hi Kimberley,

She is doing amazing, both Mama and daughter...I have been blessed to travel three times to China to welcome home my daughters...Lynn has me sitting on the edge of my chair just wanting to hear more and smiling with every word I read....there is nothing like this journey to your sweet children...

After reading Lynn's posts I am hoping that other's will be in awe as you are and realize the treasure that awaits them....these precious children...your precious daughter is just out there waiting for that moment she will be placed into your loving arms...

Keep walking forward in peace for that precious moment you meet your daughter,

Hugs,

I tagged you, but I seen you have already played.
I love your list, I too believe there was a conspiracy surrounding JfK's death. My heart goes out to that family, they have had to deal with so much grief.
