Just before CNY I realized that getting an update during this time just wasn't going to happen. I was finally at peace about it. I did not give up hope but I had stopped checking my e-mail every 15 minutes.
My e-mail has been acting up lately and I cannot access my spam folder. Last night hubby called me from his office and said "Did you see it?"
"We got our update!"
I could hardly sit still while he was forwarding it to me! Of course once I got it I could not open the pictures- ugh. Hubby kept trying to send them to me in a different way but it was our oldest son Matt that changed the format and then sent them to me! Thank you Matty!!
The pictures are so precious! I am amazed at the difference in these girls from the time they arrived at the SWI until now. They have been transformed from scared little girls to happy children. They both have had the blessings of been involved in Half the Sky preschool and Grace and Hope foster homes. Honestly I think these programs have made a big difference in the potential, the happiness and their ability to adjust.
We got measurements on the girls!
Emma is 4ft 2 in and Ellie is 4 ft- they both are a healthy weight and have smiles on their faces!!
The girls like school. Emma's favorite subject is Phy Ed ;-) and Ellie's is music. Their favorite activity is dance. They like younger children and they are kind to them (which is good news for Anna).
Emma is described as honest and has good behavior. Ellie is active and lively! The pic above says it all!!
They like to play together and with other other children. They like hide and seek and jump rope!
They like pretty and colorful clothes!
They both know a little bit of English- yippee!!
Both girls are excited to be adopted and come to America! I have no idea if this is actually true BUT we are going to choose to believe it!
Thank you Jesus!!
We are on 56 days and counting! Does anyone know if C2A2 is working on LOA's right now? How long do they take off for CNY?
