So what do I do in the mean time?? One thing we need to do is update our home study. It is crazy, but it will need updated one month before we travel, so we need to get that done. Also, we are moving! We close on our new house this next Thursday. We are really excited about our new house, although sad to leave our neighbors here. I think God planned our move at the right time, though, because it has kept my mind from dwelling on the adoption process too much! There is a lot to think about with a new house and a lot to do, so I can't just sit and think about wanting Emma right now.
Actually, it is pretty hard not to think about her! Even Callie thinks about her all the time cause she talks about her all the time! Callie knows that when it is day here, it is night there, and she prays for Emma to have a good day when we are going to bed. Below is a little photo book that we sent to Emma today. I hope she gets it and is able to play with it often so she can maybe recognize our faces. You can't really tell, but on the pictures it has English and Chinese. It has the English of big sister, little sister, my family, daddy, and mommy. And then it has the Chinese of all of them. I had Matt ask his employee that lives in China to write that for us when he was in China last week. :)
