Care package from Janalee: I have the best bloggy friends!

Today we had a special delivery. It wasn't brought by a stork or an adoption agency, but is was pretty special and brought happy tears to my eyes. (Read that Janalee, HAPPY TEARS! You didn't make me sad!) I opened it up to find all sorts of special things from Taiwan adoptive mom Janalee. She's been following our journey and our frustrations, and she sent a whole lot of little happy things in a box. There's a card with a touching note with a little "h" on the front. (I wanna little "H.") There's a Willow Tree figure and lotions for me, and books, sunglasses, and the softest most precious little doll for Miss Hannah. I love this doll. I'm a tactile person... always had a soft blankie as a kid, and the texture of this doll's dress is so comforting. I love it. Love it, love it. Did I forget to mention how sweet this doll is? Anyway... thank you, Janalee. This made my day. The support of adoptive mothers who have been there, done that, is reassuring.

And just for kicks... here are the outtakes from my photography session with the babydog.


  1. Yay! I am so glad I made you a happy girl. Hugs to you and Kevin.
    PS- The babydog pics are great!

  2. What a great surprise! Gifts and babydog are precious. I do LOVE Willow Hill stuff.
