I have fallen in love with this little guy, and if it weren't for two huge roadblocks (1. China says one year between adoptions, and 2. husband says no, lol), I'd be all over adopting him. Since I can't, I figure I'd do the next best thing...advocate on his behalf.
His name is Marcus (okay, I'm sure it's not really, but that's what they refer to him on the website). He is 2 years old and waiting in China. He had a heart condition that was already repaired and is now developing beautifully.

Then scroll down to "Marcus." And I'm warning you...you WILL fall in love.

Five years ago, my sweet Sara was placed into my arms...a day I'll never forget. She is our sweet Rosie (her middle name is Rose), our drama queen, our princess, our blessing. We love her more than life itself...happy Sara day baby! Here's a picture of our goofball, she dressed herself for breakfast. :)

Yesterday, Tessa turned 10 months old. I can't believe she is only two months away from being one. Sigh.
She is now crawling very well, and gets around great. She desperately wants to pull up on furniture, and at this point gets to her knees, but not her feet. She is waving bye bye, and loves to play "so big!" (When we raise our hands in the air and say so big, she puts her arms above her head too.)
She wears a size 3 diaper, and wears 6-12 months clothes. She weighs 17.5 lbs.
She hates being cold. She hates things on her head. Probably doesn't bode well for a winter in northern MI does it? :)
She is firmly attached to mommy and daddy. The other day we were at a playdate and she was eyeing my friend's muffin (the girl LOVES food). My friend offered her up a bite, and she wouldn't take it. Tried it again, still wouldn't take it. So I took a piece of muffin and gave it to her, and low and behold, she ate it. :) Only wanted food from momma.
She is so sweet...I adore being her mommy. :)
