Orphan dies in China

I read tonight about a little baby girl in China that passed away waiting for  a family.  It breaks my heart to hear of such things.  She has surgery in China but didn't survive the fight.  I wonder if she had gotten the surgery sooner that things would have been a lot different.  It just reminds me of the time we went o see the orphanage that Reagh grew up in his first year of life.  There was a little boy that was there that really needed heart surgery and they had no funding to be able to do it.  Without it the said that he wouldn't survive.  I often think of him and wonder if had enough fight in him to hang on.  If we could have taken him home with us we would have.  TJ held his little hand for a long time looking at him.  He had a special place in our hearts.  I'm so glad that we will be going back to make one less orphan in China.

Dossier is Off!‏

Our Dossier has finally left the province and it's on it's way to FOI!!!!  Once step closer to our dream of a little one to be added to our family.  I'm feeling excited and nervous all at once.  Been an emotional time for me.  As we have finally heard that the Special Needs program has slowed down and we will be looking at a long process this time around.  We were so lucky to get Reagh so quickly last time.  I would love to have a brother or sister for him to grow up with.  I just hope that the wait times won't be too long.  Guess we will have to take it as one day at a time.

One step closer.

Well our Home Study is complete and is in with the province waiting approval.  I just hope that it won't be as long as it took on our last journey.  I hope that our file can get to China and logged in by June.  Positive vibes this way!
