THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

The Journey of My Life

I have decided to re-design the auction blog into a travel blog. I just love the style and Daleea was so wonderful and tweaked the header for me a bit. The blog is the same site, so you can hit your auction link and go straight there.

Please join us, I will not be blogging on the Seventh Diamond again until after we return from China.

My Princess...

I am very emotional right now. Anyone out there have this? I just think about my girl all of the time and what this experience is going to bring to her. I know how happy we will be and how terrified she most likely will be. I think about the past 3 years and all we have gone through, that is really just overwhelming. I am in a sort of auto mode. I am picking up the Z-Pack prescriptions and buying our gifts to bring and making sure we have enough things to keep the kids busy on the plane. But every once in a while I just look at her and have a good cry. After all of this time, my girl is coming home.

Our SW called yesterday to tell us that our gotcha day has been delayed. China wants us in country for a couple of days to make sure we don't have swine flu before they give Sophia to us. We were told the adoption is not being delayed, just that we will receive her a few days later than was originally planned. I hope that they get past this before we get there, but we will do what we need to do.

I like this photo because it shows what I believe is her bedroom and she has cute pink sheets and a little vanity by her bed. I am hoping she is happy where she is and that she will be happy here too.
