Hi, Jessica is still sleeping in Sarah's bed (or at least the bed we had bought for her). The room isn’t that big, so we just ordered her a new (smaller) bed. I love it! I think I will be able to
FedEx the final paper work to our agency on Friday. God willing our papers will go to China next week. I have had the crazy idea I should try to adopt two kids at once. I actually found another girl at Adoption Advocates International, our old agency. She has the prettiest smile I've ever seen. She is 4 years old. Juergen says "no". I'm sure she will get another family. To be honest with you I shopped for Sarah’s bed to try to help myself feel better (retail therapy they call it). What is wrong with me? Why can't I just be happy with one more? I am pretty sure Juergen will not let us adopt one more time. Sarah (at least I think) will be our last. I realize I can not parent all the orphans in this world. It is just so hard for me (who has so much) not to just want to do more! I could make room for one more! As happy as I am about getting Sarah, I am already crying for all those that will never have a place they call home. They will never know a mom who would spoil them and fight for them!
