UNREAL...

I cannot believe how long families are having to wait to travel for their babes...
It amazes me that anyone can rationalize that this is in the best interest of the kids.
After having an attachment specialist involved in our post adoption and all the things we learned about the different ages and stages of babies/kids emotional growth it just shocks me.
These kids need to be placed with their adoptive families ASAP.
Change needs to take place with adoption programs everywhere.
While I do agree that South Korea is/was appropriate in holding the babies for 5 months in the chance of a parent returning or for domestic adoption, the process for bringing the child to the International adoptive parents should be expedited in some way once there has been a confirmed family match.
All of those waiting, I am so sorry that you are in this position. We brought our girl home at 11 months of age, which worked out fine BUT I would have brought her home sooner if the option was there. OBVIOUSLY...
I look at her strong personality and I am pretty sure she would not have adjusted so well if she were much older when she came to us.
Good Luck to you all, hopefully something will change soon.

This Is Where I Am At In Life, I Think...

Rapunzel: I've been looking out of a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what I might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if it's not everything I dreamed it would be?
Flynn Rider: It will be.
Rapunzel: And what if it is? What do I do then?
Flynn Rider: Well,that's the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.

Why Are You Making Me Hold This THING???









If looks could kill, this little guy would be have taken his last breath. Eun Jin was not happy at all about holding this sweet little boy. He is such a good baby and doesn't fuss at all. She did not even want to look at him which surprises me as she is always carrying a baby around at home.

Hmmm...

Eun Jin thinking about something. She will do this and then say "Hmmm."

Please Take This OFF Me

My mom gave this outfit to Eun Jin for Christmas. It is finally warm enough to wear. Usually the girl loves to get dressed. As soon as I tried to put this on she pushed it away and started to cry. I think the outfit is actually quite cute, she obviously thinks it is hideous.

Eun Jin loves this activity. She currently thinks she is a puppy and crawls around panting like a puppy all day.

A Mother's Day Drawing


I had another blogger "friend" host a drawing for me as I don't get any kinda traffic here but wanted to give a few things away for Mother's Day.
The above are the packages I gave.
So cute. In my opinion!
The package included a print from my favorite artist, the lovely talented Kim Haller A.K.A kilsook from etsy.com. A wonderful set of Korean alphabet magnets from another etsy seller and my favorite boy and girl books.
The boy book-Mars Needs Moms by Berkeley Breathed
The girl book-Girls Hold Up This World by Jada Pinkett Smith
These two books are my absolute FAVORITE children's books...Hands down.
I hope the ladies that won love these things just as much when they arrive!
Thanks again Rachel, I really appreciate you hosting!
