Priceless Photos

Today, we got information on Lucy's foster mom in China. Her name is Yu Mei Ling and she has a son who is 18 and a daughter who's 20. Julie at Pearl River Outreach said that Yu Mei Ling was overcome with emotion when seeing Lucy's book and was even showing the photo book to the other foster mothers. She cared deeply for Lucy and was happy to see she is happy and healthy. I cannot tell you how excited and overcome with emotion we are to have this information. I knew from day one that Lucy was in a loving environment before we were able to bring her home. One day I hope to meet and thank this lovely woman in person.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! We spent the day with Jeff's sister, Diane and her family. The kids had so much fun playing with cousins and the weather was beautiful. Lucy has Uncle Ricky wrapped around her little finger, she kept wanting him to push her in the swing and would say, "Uncle Ricky, I need you." Stinker! Jack, Olivia, Chris and Matthew played basketball. The kids fell asleep as soon as we got home. We had a yummy dinner. It was a great way to celebrate Easter.

Birthday Party

We celebrated Jack's 9th Birthday last weekend. Jack wanted to go "family" bowling and then to his favorite restaurant....Buffalo Wild Wings. We had a great time bowling 2 games. The first game was definitely a warm-up. The kids were getting discouraged, but then figured it out and had fun. Later, that day we had cake and ice cream with some friends/neighbors. Jack got LEGOS, so of course he was excited. Jack and LEGOS go together like peanut butter and jelly.
