Somewhere in China

Today I sit and think of a mother in China. A mother who gave birth to our beautiful little girl. A woman who had to make a decision that would not only change the rest of her life, but ours also. I look at the picture of our Mei-Li Lynn and cannot imagine the pain her Mother had to feel when she laid her baby at the gate of that orphanage and walked away from her. I feel for her deeply and wish I could tell her thank you and that your baby will have the best life we can give her. I cannot imagine the torture of having to make the decision she made. We are so very thankful for her decision, yet still cry for her. Somewhere in China there is the mother of our baby girl, and I hope that somehow she knows that her baby will be fine.

A Poem we love


I stepped into her room today
Knowing she's not there
This waiting for referral
Is more than one can bear

But taking in the moment
I sit down on the floor
And dream of her here with me
When waiting is no more

A little giggle fills the air
As I rub her feet
I place my hand upon her heart
To feel its every beat

A song is sung so very soft
Her eyes begin to close
She's meeting me in dream land
A place where love still grows

My vision now is very blurred
The tears stream down my cheeks
I've dreamed of her quite often
Throughout these past few weeks

Suddenly a sound is heard
The phone rings in the hall
Waking up I quickly pray
Please let it be "The Call"
