4 Months

Today marks 4 months since we sent out our Letter of Intent to adopt Liya Faith. 4 months since we made a commitment to her. A promise to love her as we love our biological children. A promise to help her adjust to her new life in our family. A promise to always be her soft place to fall, no matter if she is 3 or 30. We won't take these promises lightly.
The closer we get to bringing her home, the more real it feels. She will come home to us with her own personality. Her own temperment. The past 2 and a half years of her life have shaped who she is as a person. She has a very loving foster family, to which she has become very attached. They love her very much. I feel sad to know that they will soon have to say goodbye.

Ok, enough of the mushy stuff! Here is a mini update:
Our I800A is currently at the US Consulate. Once our agency gets it back, we will be DTC. Finally!
We are still slowly working on Liya's room. Hopefully we will get more done this week.
We sent Liya another care package. We had Ann with Red Thread call Liya's orphanage last week, to get updated measurements. Then we sent her squeaky shoes, a nice winter jacket and a musical giraffe. We also sent tea for the foster family, and cookies for Liya. We hope she likes them:)
We miss you, Liya Faith...and will see you soon!
