The thoughts in my head...

I thought about my baby girl alot today. We went to a birthday party today for my cousins son, and the kids were having a blast! Elias, our son, was having so much fun sliding down the big water slide in their front yard! I was just thinking that in a few years we will have a new addition to our family! I then wandered down the road called "What does she look like" and "When will we get her". I can't wait to wrap my arms around her and take care of her! It seems that she is all I talk about these days and I am trying to find ways to get her here, from selling plasma (yikes!) to having yard sales! But I know that the day will come that she will be home, and playing with her big brother! I can just see them sitting at the kitchen table eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and getting into all kinds of trouble! She is going to be so perfect and the answer to our prayers! Shannon has decided that he will call her "Gracie" , but I don't know if it will stick. He named Elias and he is the spitting image of his father! Down to his hands and little feet! So I think it's only fair that I get to name our daughter! Don't you agree? Oh, who am I kidding... Elias is a little mini-me and I wouldn't have it any other way! Peace and Love!

Happy Father's Day!

Well, another day and we have moved no closer to this whole adoption process than the day we decided to do this. Our plan is to save up some money, and get things done in steps. It's KILLING me! The way we are going, it will be 2020 before we are DTC!!!! And it will be our fault! BUT, things will happen in time..... We got our first "baby" gift this weekend. My mom took my 4 year old son and I to NC for a little R & R. We were walking through a store, and my mom saw the cutest toile and pink and while polka-dot diaper bag! I was ohhing and ahhing over it. I walked away and don't you know she tricked me and got it! My mom rocks! When I grow up I wanna be just like her! Peace and Love!

My name is Penny and this is my adorable husband Shannon. We have been married for 51/2 years now and we have a beautiful 4 year old son. We live in "The Holy City" aka Charleston, SC.
We are in the beginning phase of adopting a daughter from China. We don't know how she is yet, in fact I am pretty sure she hasn't even been born! It will take us probably a year and a half to two years until she is home. That's okay though, I know it will be worth the wait! We are all very excited to be embarking on this journey and we hope that you will join us! I have to admit up front that it may take me a while to get used to this whole blogging thing! I'm kind of computer illiterate! But I will do my best to keep you all update with the latest and greatest! Until next time... Peace and Love to all!
