April 24, 2008

We have been blessed with being able to get a copy of Cassie's 'finding ad' from the Kunming newspaper. It's the first picture we now have of Cassie -- she was 1 month old in the picture. I just love the picture. It's my favorite of the 4 pictures we have of her. The other 3 that we have are from when she was 4 months old. In this picture she appears to be sleeping. She looks like a little sleeping angel. I'm sure she doesn't know it -- but I know that Jesus was watching over her smiling because He knew that her parents would be there to take her home in about 1 year.

The envelope with a photo of the newspaper ad came in the mail yesterday -- which was April 24, 2009. The date of the newspaper when her ad appeared -- April 24, 2008.

And now in less than 6 days we will be leaving to bring our angel home. In exactly 7 days and 12 hours to the minute -- she'll be placed in the loving arms of her forever parents.

We are so blessed.

Sherry, what a nice suprise to have an extra piece of Cassie's "history", so to speak. She looks soooo sweet in the ad. I can't wait until she is home with you and Sonny where she belongs.

Sherry said...

Thanks guys -- I would have never made it through this without all my China Sisters. Can you believe this sweet little girl is mine? And in 6 days I finally get to see her sweet face in person.

I just got all choked up reading that Sherry. She is so beautiful and peaceful looking in that photo. What a great thing to have and treasure. You are so close to having her in your arms!

What an Angel! She is so precious sleeping. She is so precious in your other photos as well.
That is so neat about the dates of the finding add and receiving date of the add. What was the date you had in your mind for so long?
I can't wait to see you holding your sweet baby. I just wish I could be there with you guys to witness it first hand.
You and Sonny will be wonderful parents.

(((Huge Hugs)))

Lesa -- I had forgot all about that 'date'. It was 419 -- April 19th -- pretty close to a lot of events -- isn't it.

Lesa said...

New list is coming out soon!!
