Blessed Sunday, exciting Monday!

Shelby was baptized yesterday and it was a wonderful day! It was VBS Sunday and it was the perfect ending to a wonderful week. Shelby was sure tired by Friday but she enjoyed VBS so much...thanks Ms. Connie for letting us sneak in!!!







The Jordan crew!!!



The Harnist family!!!


The Happy Glenskis!!!


Tonight we said goodbye to Ms.Amanda our social worker...it was our last offical follow up visit. We won't say goodbye for long...we will be seeing her in a couple of weeks to play. I give her high praise! She listened and supported me during many ups and downs on my journey to motherhood and for that I am thankful for her compassionate ear!!

We recently said goodbye to our social worker too..it was bittersweet. Nice to finally be done with the paperwork, but we had grown to love our social worker over the many years of ups and downs, doubts, etc.

Happy 4th of July!! Last year at this time we were preparing to go get our daughters in just a few short days!! What a year it has been! ;)

Still waiting for Shelby...

Our wait for Shelby began on September 13, 2005. We are now very close to being with our angel. We hope to travel in early 2009. This has been a journey filled with many highs and lows. I want to take this oppportunity to thank everyone who has stood by me and prayed for us. My mom-she has been on this roller coaster from the first informational meeting and we take turns keeping each other grounded, my family-my grandma who helped me have the best nursery ever and my LA gang-for not giving up that they will soon have another niece and cousin, friends-way to many to name but I'm going to try (and if I leave someone out don't fret we will call it a paper pregnancy moment)-Lauri (all the cards), the Wardskis, Jen., Lisa, Sheri, Tiffany, my Hillcrest UMC friends...always patiently letting me cry, vent, and forever guess at what China will do next, and last but not least my work family-I can't even begin to express how they have kept me lifted up...from Sally starting her hair bow collection, Chinese New Year celebrations, Sebrina always keeping up with the rumor queen and marking the days off as we get them, and finally all the cards and pick me ups left quietly on my desk at the most needed times. They always know when the end of the month comes (referral time) I need a shoulder and pep talk and never waiver in staying positive. So thank you all again for what you have done and all that I know you will do until we have "Shelby Marie from Tennessee" (from the famous ? my dad had for her in her quilt scrapbook "Shelby Marie are you really from Tennessee...you look Chinese to me")
