Hi Connie,
Love that!If you have time could you tell me please what are the medical needs of both of your sweet babies?
We are in the process of adopting a little girl from China as well and are praying for God to lead us to the right one so we have no idea what "special need" she will have....cleft palate and limb differences are the ones so far that touch me very much.
You have such a beautiful family and God's provision for your adoptions is so inspiring!

God is so good. He certainly directs our paths...and then blesses us with allowing us to look back and see His hand in everything.
