Angel,

LOVE the close up of Kaiya - my son asked like 3 times "how much does that look like Tia?!" They do resemble one another :) The same son (12) also saw Zoe's beautiful photos and asked, "who is that?" and when I answered "Zoe the Guatamodel, isn't she cute?" He said "yes . . . " :)

I'm glad you had a great time at the beach, I love all the photos - the one of all 4 of you girls is another favorite!

Cheers!

Thank you for the comment:) Fostering to adopt scared us for awhile too. But we feel that if a little one is placed with us and we can love it and then his/her parents can clean themselves up then, we have done what we were supposed to do! We chose this county here in CO because from the beginning they put the kiddos into 2 different groups...foster(most likely return to bio parents) and foster to adopt(most likely get adopted). 85% of the time the foster to adopt kids are adopted by their foster parents:)We could do just an adoption, BUT we want Bug to be the oldest. The youngest child was 5, or we could have gotten 3 babies under the age of 3 1/2. Those scenerios don't work for us. We want 0-2yrs old and possibly 2 siblings in that age range.

Believe me I will probably e-mail you several times during this adventure:)

Angel Face,
Tears filled my eyes as I looked through this album of beauty...grace...speechless awe...truly the close up of kaiya is breathtaking...she is beautiful...her hair is getting so long...just to think that she could be rocking herself to sleep alone in Chiina...falling forward into the hard bottom of her bed...just to think that she would not have experienced the sand between her toes...just to think that she would never had experienced holding her big sister Zoe's hand while laughing at the wind...just to think????where would she be now...what would she be doing alone......oh how very grateful I am that you and Russ have embraced her life and heart...and we embrace you all....with all my loving heart to you my dearest daughter...Mia Momma/Polkadot
