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 :)

A long lost friend from Olivia's orphanage just visited us! BeiLee just turned two and has been in his new home one month now. He was in the area to visit Shriner's Hospital in Chicago so we got to meet him and his new family! It's hard to know if they remember each other, but I do have a group picture that they're both in. Today, when we shared photos given to us from the orphanage I noticed that some of his photos had the same back drops and were dated the same day as Olivia's (7/12/06). I also noticed that they shared some of the same clothes in different photos which isn't surprising since they're similar in size. It is so special to us to have another connection to our daughter's first "family."
