Very Special Gift

Tonight I got a very special gift. There is a picture of it at the top. Does it resemble the picture underneath? Almost perfectly I would say. It was from my friend LK. She about had me in tears tonight. Believe it or not she "claims" that 10 months ago she could not even draw stick figures of people but now she can produce a drawing like this. I am absolutely amazed! And then she was worried that the pink mat would not match Olivia's room. Well that is not a problem because it won't be hanging in Olivia's room. It is hanging in my family room. She even spelled out Olivia's name in Chinese characters and then wrote "Daughter of my Heart" across the bottom. I just can't stop looking at it.

There is still no news on our travel approvals yet. I am feeling a little down today about it. I know realistically it will probably not be until next week, but I was really hoping for this week.

Hang on Olivia! Mama is coming!

PS: Morgan has one more (last) baby goat. She has Scooter, Missy and Lily.

Love the picture. Your friend is extremely talented. I know it's a bummer to wait - but truly, you'll be in China before you know it - and the waiting will be a distant memory! (bear in mind, we were only DTC 2/2/06 - there's a good chance I don't have clue what I'm talking about!)
