We are off to Antigua tomorrow where I spent a month when I was in college for Jan term. Where God first planted the seeds of loving the children of Guatemala. Miss you all. . . . thanks for indulging me by looking at 8,000 pictures of our new sweet angel. Will post more later. Thanks again for the wonderful comments.

Lots of pics of our new sweet angel
Ok, first off I apolagize up front for posting way too many pictures. I could not choose this time. She has so many expressions, and I just love the pics we have gotten. One more reason for so many pics is usually when I am uploading in Guatemala it takes 5x as long, this time it was so fast. I am so glad we made the trip. I really feel like it is a good transition. There have definitley been moments where it is very evident she is grieving the loss of the only mom she has known. I have had a few wonderful conversations with attatchment and adoption counselors and they have assured me she would grieve even this young. The best advice I have gotten is to stay with her in the feeling, don't try to distract her or fix it. This is tough as a parent, we want our children to be happy. Pray for her little tender heart that she falls in love with her forever family. I just keep holding her and praying over her that she is bonding and falling in love like we have with her. Ok enough blabber on to way too many pictures. Thanks for all the comments. . . . they are so sweet and I absolutley love hearing from everyone. I read them to Lucy too. She can't wait to meet you all:)
