Peeking Through The Hole
A few days ago I got out of the shower and Paige ran up to me and told me to stop. She leaned her sweet little head against my tummy and seemed to be concentrating on something.

I asked her what she was doing?

"Shhh", she said "I'm trying to look through your belly button and see my new sister in your tummy."

Poor child. Clearly I am going to have to explain the concept of adoption to her once again.

She is very excited and can't wait to be a big sister.

I looked online today for a big map of the world to hang on the wall so we could draw a line from our country to Ethiopia. I'm thinking the visual may help her understand a little better.

I heard her tell one of her friends at school the other day that she was going to get a pretty brown sister soon. And if she is lucky she might get a brown brother too. Her little friend shook her head in agreement at how wonderful that will be. Made me smile.

Our agency had one more referral at the end of last week so we are #57 overall.

We are all getting very excited!!!

Julie that is so sweet! I just hope my kids are as excited about our own homegrown baby as yours are about one many many miles away. You have raised a very sweet daughter!

Oh dear, it is a tough concept to understand for the little ones. Very cute though!
