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 :)

We are home recuperating from our trip to Florida. We had a nice time with cousins and enjoyed swimming in our backyard pool, but two days before the cousins left, Emily came down with a fever of 103. Fortunately she responded well to ibuprophen and had stretches of near normalcy, but the fever kept coming back for five days straight. She was sick 7 out of our 11 days and still has a nasty cough. I could feel my body fighting off a fever and so far have escaped with just a cough, but Andy has been feverish for the last three days. We're all quarantined in our family room with the suitcases around us, still unpacked!

However, we do have some good news...our agency got an update on Olivia that we're expecting in our mail box soon. It will be in Chinese (with translation to follow, hopefully soon) so we won't know what it says yet, but will have a new photo! I'll post it when it arrives.
