Caroline may not be home yet, but she already has friends that can't wait to meet her.  Two of those friends are C and S.  She has another friend J, but she told me I could not take her photo to share with you.  Maybe next time I see her she will let me take her photo.  C and S are absolutely adorable.  A few weeks ago I had a chance to play with them at a Mommies Coffee and then last night at a dinner we had at our house.  They broke Caroline's toys in for her.  I have been assured that she will love her room and that all the toys are great fun.  C told me that I needed to hurry up and go get Caroline so that she could play with her right away.  C lives one street over from us.  Although S and J live across town, I'm sure that Caroline will see a lot of them as well.  Well without further ado, here's some photos of C and S:

C loves to have her photo taken and is very inquisitive.  She loves to pose for the camera.  This is my absolute favorite photo of her.

This is my favorite photo of S.  She is more the laid back take it all in type.  You can really see that in this photo of her.  I had a great time with her last night reading stories and talking about Mulan.  I took it while she was playing in C's bedroom during Mommies Coffee.  I just love how the light is framing her face.  

Every girl needs a "Lovee".  S has a Lovee and he has been so loved:

She loves him with all her heart!!!!  And let me tell you, this kid has lots of heart!

C is more the love on her baby type.  When she wants to love her baby she is very serious about it too. 

I hope to be able to share more about J in the future.  Like C and S she is absolutely adorable.  I'm one lucky Momma to be to have such wonderful friends for my daughter to meet when she gets to the USA.  I am also one lucky Momma to have met their parents.  It is great to have a network of parents who have been through what I am going through.

  1. So wonderful that you have been able to connect with local families even before you travel - we haven't been so lucky. We have a great group of friends, but none who have adopted little ones from China...I am sure it will come in its time - but so great for you that you have this now!

    Blessings, Ashley

  4. LOVE the pic with her in glasses with her bear--- so very cute!

  5. I can see why that is your favorite photo of C. The last photo of her hugging her baby and the sad look on her face tugs on my heart.
