Talking to Cadonia

We got to call the orphanage tonight and talk to our sweet girl. Just the sound of her voice makes me smile and cry at the same time. We found out that Ricot had already talked with her about being
adopted. I asked if she remembered me and she said yes, Stephanie. She sounded very excited when Kevin asked her if she wanted to be adopted and come home to live with us. It was so good to hear her sweet voice.
I told her that some of our friends were coming to see her next week and that we would be sending her some presents. She said yes, she wanted a new dress and a baby doll. I have so enjoyed shopping for her and can't wait to see her in each and every outfit. I just wish I were going on this trip so I could see her face when she gets her gifts. We are not going to get to go until June which seems like a long time away. But in the mean time I will busy myself getting through this mound of paperwork!!! The sooner we get through it, the sooner we will have that sweet voice filling our house.


  1. I sure wish I could have been there to talk with Cadonia. I too just smile and cry when we talk about her. Praying that everything goes smoothly and quickly. I think she needs to see her nana!
    Love you

  2. I love the look on my brother's face when he is looking at you... I can see the love he feels for you, his wife! He is happy because you are happy!!!

  3. Ah, the memory of calling our girls that first time with Kevin are so vivid in my mind. Enjoy every step of the way, and pray for patience! I love following your blog!! Please follow ours:
