The Outfit Fits and Hair Pretties

When Piper opened the package yesterday we did not think the outfits would fit her. I was thrilled to get these pictures today! I think she looks cute and warm in her little outfit.




It is hard to see that she doesn't have that same radiant smile like she did at Philip Hayden. I know that she is loved and I have seen how happy she is with Jenny, but I think she is probably confused, scared, and worried she will be taken away again. She will be and that that thought is almost as heartbreaking as knowing she is waiting for us. I hate that I have to be the one to take her away from what she is growing to love. I know it will take her a LONG time to show me the same affection I feel for her and I cannot wait until I can see that radiant smile for myself.


Enough deep stuff!


The second photo had me laughing out loud. Turns out Piper took out all her hair pretties and put them in the baby boy's hair. Apparently he is a real sweetie and everyone loves him. Guess he needed to look pretty too!

Do you think immigration will notice if I sneak him in my carry-on? Man, I wish! I know, I know, I am being greedy, but it is so hard not to fall for the sweet adorable faces of the kids you see waiting.

Hmmm, better start saving my pennies!

ashley,
it seems forever since you had your referral. I hope you get that LOA soon. What is taking them so long? I guess we say that no matter how fast it goes!

Aww! She is such a pretty girl.
I wish they would hurry up and get her to you all. I don't understand at all why it takes so much longer to travel through the WC program??
I am hoping you get your LOA very very soon!
