This Christmas, Annie, we have so many hopes and dreams for you. We pray for you, we talk about you like you are part of the family. We LOVE you. You may be a tiny baby at this point, or you may be growing inside your mother's womb. We don't know. But, so many people lift you up in prayer daily. I love it when people talk about you and ask me about you. Nonna and Nonae gave me the most precious gifts for you (and me) for Christmas.
I got this necklace that means mother in amharic which is the language you will know.
I absolutely LOVE this book and CAN. NOT wait to read it to you.
It is about children all over the world and that we are all alike regardless of where we were born or where we came from. All the babies have ten little fingers and ten little toes. I cried when I read it because I was thinking of you.
Your first American Girl bitty baby. I, of course, cried again.
Jeremy, Rachel,Owen, Noah and Jonah gave you these sweet pink ballet slippers for our Christmas tree. When we hang these on the tree next year we will be only months away from bringing you home forever.
We also received so many donations for your adoption fund. You will be here in our arms before we know it.
