We met Addison!!!

This is the book of family photos we sent Addison. There were bite marks on the pages! (They were kisses!!) Evendentally she likes to bite things, especailly bottle nipples. Her foster mom keeps plenty of extra on hand because she is alwasy biting the ends off of them.
Addison and her foster mom

Addison liked my husband! (He usually make small children cry, so this was really good!) She went to both of us rather easily, but then eventually wanted her foster mom.

When she got fussy, her foster mom strapped her to her back and she calmed right down. The social worker said we need to get one of those carriers so we can carry her on our backs as well. She loved being on her foster mom's back! It was cute to watch her cuddle her head into her back.
Waving bye-bye.

She loves music and will clap her hands to it! Her Foster mom said she always takes her to church she will always clap during the music time. Her foster mom said said she was quite a celebrity at church!

Addison has a big personality! She is a complete ham. When we played peek-a-boo with her she would squeal and grin! She was also constantly moving. She never stopped wiggling the entire hour we were there! Her foster mom said she thinks Addison will be an opera singer because she is alwasy squealing and being very loud! She will fit right in with her three, loud older brothers!

Her foster mom is wonderful person. Mark and I gave her gifts but truly, I can't ever begin to repay her for all the love and prayers she has given our baby girl. How do thank a perosn who ahs loved you child so well, fo so long? I can't wait to get our baby on Thursday, but part of me is terribly sad to take her from her Korean family. It will definitely be bitter sweet.


  1. The smile on Mark's face is beautiful. It is as if he's waited his whole life to hold his beautiful daughter.
    Heather--you are so blessed and this little girl will be so lucky to have you as a mother!
    I have tears in my eyes--I'm so happy for you!

It is a bittersweet day coming your way (we know from two times before!) but you will get through it and praise God! you're bringing home a beautiful daughter! Your pictures make me more anxious to get there - luckily we leave Friday!!
