Why Did You Bring Me Home?...This Morning's Conversation with Sophia.

This morning Sophia was looking at her Baby Be Blessed doll. I told her she was a very special doll because Mama took her with her to China when she went to get Sophia. Sophia looked at me and said "China?". I said yes, "I went to China to bring you home". She then asked, "Why did you bring me home?". I said, "Because I am your Mama and I love you." And she looked deep in my eyes and said, "Thank you Mama".

she is so beautiful. I wish YaYa would say thank you, she is still so confused by it all. she loves us, of course, that's not it... but she can't see how the older 2 are NOT from China while she/Bennett are. She asks me about once a week if she will get her kids from China, etc. Big idea for little girls/boys...
