More Adoption Day Pics

Here are pics of the two new sisters, Kara with her life-long friend, Lela, and Kara using her new translator that we purchased today at Wal-Mart, but later realized she likes it so much because it has Chinese games. :)

Michelle, I've just had a chance to sit down and relish getting all caught up on your wonderful journey in China. Kara just sounds like a darling little girl and I love to hear about the interactions between she and Leila. It sounds like the beginning of a wonderful lifelong friendship. Of course, God always knew this was the plan! Praise the Lord for your faithfulness and your wonderful family. Can't wait to hear more and see more pictures!

Oh it's so good to be back in blogland! You and I have "blogged" before, but it's been long while since I had to work full-time this past school year. I lost contact with all the great people I have "met" with adopted children. Hope to catch up with you and your beautiful daughters and see what's going on with this new "third" story!! ; )

Hi Michelle,

She will figure out what she has been missing all this time. You just keep a lovin'and a squeezin' and a kissin' and a huggin'. She will come around.
I am so glad things are going so well. We miss you.

Hugs
Faye
