We live near a wonderful botanical garden and each year they bring in a large number of butterflies and raise them until they hatch and then release them into a beautiful terrarium. When you go to visit, you walk into a room filled with butterflies flying free all around you. Eli and Sophia were completely enchanted.
We had so much fun watching them fly and hoping they would land on us. There is also a wonderful children's garden area outside and we walked in the sunshine while the children ran and played.
I am an everyday woman. I am married to my soulmate. I have three sons ages 16,13 & 4. Adoption was never something that I had planned to do, but through an interesting path, God has led me and my husband to pursue the adoption of our daughter Sophia from China. It has changed me in so many ways. I cannot wait to look in the mirror and see the woman I will be when this journey is over.
