Four posts in one day, that has to be some sort of record right??? I really want to be a better blogger but I just don't get to it. Someday maybe.
We had the opportunity on Friday to visit our adoption agency in Denver. I really wanted to meet Beth and show her our precious Maddie. Many times over our 5 year wait Beth was there to support and counsel John and I. She was always honest, kind, and understanding. I was so excited when she was the one to call with our referral of Maddie. She will always have a place in my heart and going back for a visit with Maddie felt like we had gone full circle.

One year ago today at 12:11 p.m. the phone rang with the most amazing news of our baby girl waiting in China. I still get teary when I remember Beth saying "Congratulations, you have a beautiful baby girl" It is so amazing that a year has passed and she is here with us after waiting so long. She has changed so much from her serious referral photo. After the flurry of the call, I of course printed off a dozen copies and posted them all over. When I would come down first thing in the morning I would stare at that sweet little face. It was so hard to be so far away from her, yet after so many years being so close. I will treasure always this special day.

It's hard to believe we have had Maddie a month today. She is doing great! We could not have asked for a better fit for our family. She is so happy and loves to do whatever we do. She has learned so much this month and has gotten much stronger. She is trying to crawl and is pulling herself up on the furniture. She is also feeding herself puffs and crackers very well. She is saying Momma, Babba, Bye-Bye and is trying really hard to say Kitty. She likes the dogs, but loves the cats.
We are still struggling with our nights, we have her down to one bottle now. We feel fortunate that this is the only concern we have at this time. She is just doing so well and we are enjoying her so much.
