This blog chronicles the miracles and struggles of our daughters, Emily and Olivia. Emily was born 15 weeks early and had many complications, but she continues to amaze us! Olivia, born in China with heart complications, is also beating the odds. She joined her forever family (us!) when she was four years old and has been doing wonderfully! UPDATE: We started homeschooling August 2009 :)

pix for Olivia
(click an image to enlarge it)
I've picked some photos of us to send to Olivia in China. I'm not positive she'll get them, but thought it was worth a try. I don't even know if she's aware that she is getting a new family...and may only be told the day we meet her. Sometimes the kids are well prepared and have obviously received their new family's photo album, and other times not....
Here you're viewing the pix in collages, but we're actually sending them in a "talking" photo album with 36 4x6 pix, each with it's own button to play a recorded message up to 10 seconds. Since she doesn't speak English, we'll keep it simple (and add English and Chinese captions), but thought it's be good for her to get accustomed to our strange voices and perhaps even learn some new words.
I hope she gets her photo album and I hope she won't be scared of these strange foreigners.
