One Month

Today it has been one month since our paperwork arrived back in Taiwan. There was a flurry of activity at the end of November, beginning of December when we received the paperwork-- the "hurry up" part, and now we are in the "and wait" portion of our adoption.

As Amelia stands next to me now leaning her head on my shoulder, I am reminded that the wait will end, and just as Amelia is home, Sunny will be home soon too. In the meantime, I am reading about attachment, we are praying for her daily, and we are attempting to learn some mandarin. Good golly I can only imagine how much we are botching the pronunciation!

Here's another picture of Sunny from the batch we were given in November. It was taken back in June.

Hi there. I saw your blog on RR. You're going to Taiwan? How wonderful! My husband served a mission to Taiwan from 1998 to 2000. I was able to go there after he graduated college a few years ago. Taiwan is wonderful! I even speak some chinese - although not as much as my hubby. I have a recipe for jiaozi's which are tasty dumplings - I'd be happy to share the recipe, if you like! :o)
