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 :)

Somebody turned SIX!!

With so much going on I've neglected this blog, but we are all still alive and well.  We went to Florida, celebrated Christmas and New Years with my side of the family there as well as visiting Jack (Olivia's orphanage friend and our China travel-mate).  I've got photos to post once I sort through them all!  Nineteen of us shared a big rental house (I'm one of five) and the cousins loved having their own heated pool in the back yard.  This year we didn't go to Disney, but opted for two days at Sea World instead which the girls enjoyed.  

We've been back a while now, but I've been busy with all kinds of things like trying to stay warm!  Since it's hermit season here, I've been spending a lot of time reading up on APD (Auditory Processing Disorder) and other learning issues as I seek out how better to help Emily continue to be successful in school.  We also just hosted some ice storm refugees from Kentucky--my sister's family of five + dog--for four days...AND CELEBRATED A BIRTHDAY :)  Olivia is now SIX!!  Oh, and she also lost her first two teeth last week!  And, not to be outdone, Emily lost one this morning, too!

Happy belated birthday, Olivia! That is just awesome! Six is such a cool age to be!

I've been trying to catch up on blogs (haven't been able to at home).
