Just Keeps Getting Better

We had the best day yet! Sweet Lily didn't even cry when she fell out of her chair at breakfast....I'm still having heart palpitations, but she is fine. She whined a little and went back to singing. She made up this sweet little song using all of our names. It is precious!!

We went back to have her TB test read, all clear:) one step closer to home. We got to spend the morning shopping on Shaiman Island. We loved every minute of it. Got lots of souvenirs at Jordon's, plus our adoption Barbie. We ate lunch at Lucy's while crazy Trent tried to play hackeysack with a bunch of Chinese people. LOL We also went to Judy's...what a sweet lady. Loved talking with her about our faith!

Lily Joy is a shopper. She wanted everything and did an excellent job convincing Baba to get it for her. That girl has to teach me:) It is such a blessing to watch her taking everything in. It's a whole new world for her and her little face is priceless. Those eyes just twinkle with each new experience.

Tonight, we went to a circus. It was incredible. All five of us were in awe. I may be the only person, other than my hubby, who cried during a circus. Lily was so happy and excited and the big kids really enjoyed it. As I watched them, I couldn't help but cry a little. God has answered my prayers beyond what I ever imagined.


  1. I have so enjoyed reading about your journey to Lily...I can't wait to you all are home for Christmas!

  2. I can "hear" your happiness through your writing. So thankful that Lily Joy has turned the corner of grieving and is enjoying her time with her family. I know you are - but enjoy every moment!
