All I have to say is how precious Sarah seems to be with the girls. I know it isn't all fun and games, and that I'm sure there have been hard times, but the smile and pride in her face is so evident. What a blessing!

Jean,
How wonderful to see you all together now. Ellie and Emma look to fit right in to the group. Your pictures are great. Hope all goes well as you continue your journey in China. Love the matching PJ's:) Keep posting as you can. All the best, Vicki and Cate

Dawn said...

Blessings and prayers for you all. What a wonderful family and how happy they all look. I know older child adoption is not all easy but it is so much fun too. The girls fit right in.

Susan A said...

Loved the pictures!! :) Finally the girls are with your family!! :) Praying that the transtition will work out smoothly and that the girls will embrace your family's love.

God has blessed you with two more beautiful girls, and I am so thrilled you are finally able to hold them in your arms.

Sally-Girl! said...

Loving you and praying for you as you add these two precious girls to your family. I know photos look wonderful, but you are in for a challenge. How could you not be when adopting two girls at the same time, and bringing two girls with you and you are in a foreign country!!!! There is not a moment that I don't think about you!

I look at Sarah and she is a totally different kiddo than when you got her. It really is pronounced that you have added two more "new" sisters. She has turned out to be an amazing little girl because of you!!!

Love you!!!!

Sammy said...

You guys all look great and the girls are just lovely!

Joan said...

God Bless you All!!!

The smiles on all of you are beautiful.

Shonni said...

I am so crying and so happy for you all. Thank you for sharing your story with us. They are just beautiful!

Sue said...

Jean, I have been looking frequently at your blog lately....Sarah seemed to grown up overnight. The pictures are so priceless, it is nice to see smiles from your girls and so forth. I sure the "grieving" will come too, but it nice to see some happy moments initially and Looks like you are all doing well.

ronvic7 said...
