We have a new Daughter...












I can not go into great detail right now. But we met Empress Sassy Pants at 11:00 am - she was beautifully dressed, all smiles and carrying her Hello Kitty Backpack and Pleasant Goat. She came right to me and gave me a big hug, called me Mama... and it was all down hill from there.  Almost as soon as I started to breathe again - she started crying (sobbing) and running. She took her backpack and little bag and ran back to the room she had just come out of "I am out here!" She is sorely missing her foster mom and ayi.  She ran after them when they were leaving... handed me back the little presents I gave her.. and I had to borrow jelly beans to keep her with us. "Bu yao Mama"  Now she is napping and I am hoping that a combination of familiarity and NOODLES will keep her with me for now. Our harmonious period is likely to be non-harmonious. But she is the most beautiful little girl... with a gorgeous smile.. and I hope to see it again soon!!

Missy, hang in there. You've been there done that before and we all know how well it will end up!! I pray that Cassia will have as easy a transition as Faith did. I pray for strength for you because I know how heartbreaking it is to watch your child go through this difficult time. Much love and many blessings on your beautiful family!! Love you, Donna
