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 :)

Didn't mean to be a tease

In my last post I said that you could find Joel's smiling face by searching our adoption agency's blog. I'd forgotten that he wasn't that well represented there...and that most of the Journey of Hope camp pix I have of him were emailed to me separately. Not sure when I'm allowed to post his pix here, but I guess for now you'll just have to trust me that he's got a smile that could light up a room.

Just looked back at the blog and found a few pix. They're not his most photogenic, but I see him on a lady's lap in Sept. 13 post... and in the June 1st post that same woman (same clothes, probably same day) has her hand on his shoulder.

And, on May 5, he was written about: "Joel is another boy that stole my heart. What a vivacious and curious little boy! He explores everything and seems to live every moment:-) He was very outgoing and didn't hesitate in coming right up to me to interact multiple times. He also enjoyed the camera and took every opportunity to pose:-) He performed the two tigers song and dance and stole the show!"

The girls have really grown! Found your little fella on the website you mentioned and he's a cutie. Congrats to your family as you return to bring home brother. I'd love to hear more about where you are in the process and when you think you may travel.
