I have these gems sitting on the bookcase in our bedroom. Each time I pass them they make me smile as I think about A1's love for Jesus and how he gets so excited to learn more about the Bible. Or when he chooses a sucker from the treat box at church for memorizing his Bible verse and instead of eating it himself, he gives it to his sister because he knows she will love it. He is such a sweet boy. I also think about A2 and how much fun I am having watching her take everything in. And how she loves to copy everything her big brother does. Or how I will just be sitting there and she will come up to me and say "I love my mommy". Makes my heart melt every time. Then I see the third gem and I can't help but smile. It makes me think of the days to come and how excited we are to bring our baby girl home and have these special moments with her too!!! They truly are precious gems and we have been so blessed.

Our 4 year old knew that we were going to a seminar about adoption and he had it in his mind that we were brining our baby girl home today. He was so worried about all of us. So on the way home we decided to stop at Toys R Us and get the kids both a baby that will look like our baby girl. That way they would have something to talk about and relate everything to. Can I just say that the selection of babies that we were looking for was very slim!! It was pretty frustrating because I began to think about when our little girl is 3 or 4 and wants a baby that looks like her...it just made me sad. I have never thought about it before.
Both of the kids were in love with their new babies. I told them that is what our baby girl will look like and neither one of them mentioned anything about her skin color...kids are so accepting! Big brother took right to taking care of his new baby...he said he is practicing for when his sister comes home to us. So sweet! Here are a few pictures...
He's not choking her...he is just loving on her...really tight! :)
She is so proud of her new baby!
Watching t.v. together. The funny thing is he never plays with his sister's baby dolls but he is so in love with this one and taking care of her. He is such a good big brother!
She is gonig to make such a good big sister too!
