Update...Gracie!! ~Finally!!!~

They finally came!! New pictures of my sweet girl. I have to say (I'm not biased or anything) that she is absolutely stunning! Each time I get new pictures, I can't believe how beautiful she is. She is wearing the little necklace we sent in her care package. How sweet is that? It costs all of $1! Makes me want to get 10 more in case it breaks!!

I adore this next one. It is exactly how I imagine her...life of the party, singing as loud as she can. What I wouldn't give to be able to hear that sweet little voice. Although, if I had to guess...I'm thinking it's probably not so "little" :)

So...Update on the adoption:
We're still waiting!!!

My LID was on 3/24, so my LOA (the next approval) should be here soon. Great Wall really should be receiving a package with some approvals this week. I'm hoping mine is in it! I'm not stressed about it yet, but I will be if mine is not in the next batch!! I have no reason to believe that travel won't be sometime in Aug or Sept. Of course, we are hoping for August!!

Wesleigh can now see Gracie's picture and know who she is. She calls her "Gwacie". Adorable!! If you ask Wesleigh where Gracie is, she answers, "Gwacie in Tie-na". We talk about Mommy and Daddy going to China to get Gracie and that she's going to sleep in her room with her...and play with her...and play with her toys. Yep...she has NO idea how Gracie Joy is going to rock her world. Lord, help me!!

Hi Jennifer,

Not sure if remember me or not-I've been such a blog slacker since we brought our Meili Grace home and moved across the country. I was clicking through the old links on my blog and was so excited to see that you have already brought one daughter home and are in home stretch to welcome home another. Both girls are just gorgeous! It's dangerous for me to follow your blog-I may just head back to China myself! Best to you and your beautiful family!

Shannon said...

I agree with you, I don't imagine "Gwacie" to be soft spoken..sweet, yes; little voice, no. LOL

I cannot wait to see pics of your two "Tie-na" dolls playing together and doing all the fun things that sisters do. And can't wait to see your boys smitten over another sweet sister.

Who needs tv when I've got your blog? :)

Yep...she has NO idea how Gracie Joy is going to rock her world.

And Gracie Joy has no idea of how her world is going to be rocked! I hope that she will adjust well to starting a new life with your family.

Amy said...

Jennifer, we share a friend in Diana and an adoration for your little Gracie. I fell in love with "Gwynne" way back when she first showed up among the Pearl River babies...what a smile and such a spirit! You can just see it in her eyes! :)

I am so thrilled that she'll soon be heading HOME to a wonderful Mommy and Daddy, three awesome big brothers and a precious big sister.

I can't describe how much joy will fill my heart to see her in the arms of her Forever Family. SO looking forward to following your journey to Gracie! Fingers crossed for August travel!

With Love and Prayers and Every Best Wish,
Amy
