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 :)

Look, Mommy!

At home we've been teaching Olivia about prayers, but at this point all she understands is that we close our eyes and say thank you and sometimes fold our hands. At church today she was pretty quiet until the pastor began to pray and then she very proudly and loudly yelled, "look, Mommy," as she pointed to her closed eyes to make sure I noticed how well she was following protocol!

Another kid said a funny thing the first we took Olivia to church. I had her put in a skirt to make it obvious--despite the buzz cut--that she is a girl. My attempt obviously failed because when I dropped Emily off in her Sunday school class a little girl demanded to know, "why is HE wearing a skirt?"
