First Evening With Wendy.

Happy Gotcha Day our sweet little Wendy! I just can't believe it has been 4 years since we received Miss Wendy Monet Chunchu.

I am so happy that she has grown and thrived so well with us. We could tell on Day One that she was a really bight little thing. I would have never thought we would have our Wendy at one time. I use to keep saying to myself that our two older bio daughters were all we would have, but our daughter Holly kept on and kept on begging us to let her have a little sister. Finally we were getting to empty nest stage when Holly was 17 and Lacy was 19 when we all set out on our journey to Wendy. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

For all of our travel mates " A Very Happy Gotcha Day" Sure wish we could see all of you once more. Luckily we keep up with a few of you.

We couldn't love you more, Wendy.

Momma and Daddy

Bittersweet Anniversary # 29

Today we are on our 29th LID Anniversary! Why is it Bittersweet this time in general? Well several of my travel buddies have gotten their referrals through the SN list and will soon be traveling to see their sweet babies faces. One of our sisters travels today on our LID Anniversary, and I'm truly happy for her. I know many would think I'm just Bitter in general, but I'm truly not. I am and will always be happy for my June 06' Sisters. I know by looking at their daughters faces that they truly belong to one another.
You see I have often felt just plain guilty for having my Wendy while others have never been a Mother at all. For that matter guilty for having two bio daughters on top of that.
My problem is that I am in this long wait, and that it isn't any easier since my youngest daughter Wendy continually asks me when we will be getting her baby sister. It doesn't ease when Wendy tells me all the things that she wants to play with her and that she wants to help feed and change her, and ease her fears and pain as I did hers. She truly thinks about these things... she is a BRIGHT child!!
We just keep our dreams in place and hope that very soon things will turn around and speed up. I pray that we won't be waiting on into 2010 or 2011, but be able to have our sweet and precious child by fall of 09'. It will happen and we will all be happy once it, I will be OVERJOYED! Mike and I will be much older than we planned, but certainly all the more wiser.
Hey, all of those clothes may come back into style by then. The clothes we bought and received for Mylie. ha

Happy 29th to all of my remaining waiting sisters.... And to all that are waiting for their PA's I pray they speed up for you so those darlings aren't waiting too long for their mommies and daddies to come.

Our Pilgrimage to Disney World....

This is the first of many posts of our Disney World Trip we took over the Halloween week/end. This is one reason I was out of pocket for a while. I actually thought I would be able to post while we were there, but the internet connection was not cooperating not to mention the Disney Magic of $10.00 dollars a day to connect to the internet!! So, we decided that we would just play with it once we got home. This is our day with our travel buddies from Wendy's adoption trip. Wendy and Katey shared the same Nanny and played together the first year of their little lives. We will always remain in contact with them!!
As a matter of fact, as we predicted, Wendy cried when we had to leave them. It was very touching....she really loves Miss Katey!!
We had one of the best days EVER!! The crowds were very low and we didn't wait in long lines at all. Not to mention the weather was superb!!!

Love and Miss you three!!

One Whole Hand Now!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is Wendy's 5th Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!! As they say at Disney World "Wendy is one whole hand now instead of just 4 fingers like Mickey". I can't believe she is one year older!

I just had to post this since today is her big day, and also a record Voting Day as well! I hope Wendy gets a great present in our choice for President. (wink)

I made the cake for today and we will open gifts tonight.

Happy Birthday my baby!!
