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 from today

The little girl who hated having her picture taken has now been requesting it by saying "shamile" (smile) and pointing to herself! She's also taken to Emily's Barbie laptop! She always wants to touch mine and play with the buttons and since she's been told "no touch" on several occasions, she's now been scolding me for touching my own laptop, saying, "No, no! No touching!" The problem is, she's not just being cute, she means it. If she can't touch it, she apparently doesn't think it's fair for me to, either! Hmmm...previously institutionalized kids are known to feel the need to be in control... She does has her feisty moments, but she's still a sweet heart most of the time :)
