A visit with Mya and Karlee!

A couple of years ago I met Mya as they were waiting for their daughter from China, and as it turned out she had grown up with our friend Carol and several others. She also knew my sister Kerry and so then a friendship was born. I remember watching their journey to Karlee and being so envious of them. They were logged in 11/05, when we were just getting started , we are logged in 4/06, just 5 months later and they have been home almost two years!!! Isn't that crazy!!! So yesterday we all met at Chic-Fi-La for lunch and we had such a great time. Mya and Karlee are both just beautiful and my life has been blessed by their friendship.

Just a quick story: Practically all of my neice Rayn's life she has been waiting for her "imaginary" cousin Franceska. She saves her clothes for her, she does not let people play "rough" in Franceska's room, she is very protective of this cousin that she still has yet to meet. So yesterday when Rayn and Karlee were sitting across the table from each other, Rayn leans into me and says, in her own little cute voice, "Meme is that little guuurl Chinese"? I said yes baby she is from China like Franceska will be. And all grown up (since she is 4 going on 24) she says, "Oh yes Meme I know that, I was just curious"!!!! Isn't that just priceless and too cute!!! And then on the way home my 8 year old neice Lily says to me, "Meme, sitting there with Karlee was just like sitting there with Franceska, sometimes I even thought it was Franceska"!! But I am so glad it's Karlee cause I love her. My 13 year old neice Jade , just could not get enough of her and kept saying she could eat her up with a spoon!!! And for my Astrud, I saw that look in her eye, that look of excitement and love. She just could not stop taking pictures. Thru the years of waiting , there have been times that Astrud has just been downright discouraged and irritated by this whole wait. She was going into 8th grade when we started and she is now a Sophomore!!!!! When we were leaving I remember telling Mya that we will meet up next month and she smiled really big and lifted her shoulders and even shook a little stating that things were going to start getting exciting, and I can't tell you how that made me feel, it was such a good feeling knowing that it IS going to happen and it will happen soon. With all of that said, Karlee is her own person, she is an Angel and we love her so much. She is our inspiration, that this too shall pass....and when all is said and done, we will all be sitting at Chic-Fi-La together, all Family, all tied together for a lifetime. Enjoy the pictures!
Rayn and Karlee!!! Just too cute for words!!
