A special something in the mail today!

Today a special something came in the mail.....


A video taken of both the girls we are looking at adopting!!  It was amazing!  Each girl (Manasa- 1; Ramya- 4) had a separate video to give us a small 'glimpse' of where they are socially/developmentally. 

When I first put the CD in my computer I could not get it to work and I was SO sad!  Next I tried it in the home computer and it worked... YES!  David heard me watching it and asked what it was.  I told him it was a video of the girls.  I hadn't expected to watch it alone, I was just trying to see if I could get the thing to work, but then I could not get my eyes off it :).  David hollered at me from the other room, "Isn't that something we can do as a family?!?!?"  Oooops, yes, I suppose it is something we could, and should, watch as a family.  He brought the kiddos in and they both sat on my lap.  Madi lost interest quickly, but Conner insisted on watching the videos multiple times.  He asked us many, many questions about the girls, and got very excited when they would do something, like hold a rattle, or put a puzzle piece where it went.  I explained to him that we are only going to be taking one girl home with us.  He informed me it would be Ramya.  He always tells me it will be Ramya.  He even told me it would be Ramya after I told him she already found a family and we were looking to adopt Manasa.  I'd think this kid is just insanely insightful, but his next sentence was, "Well, we'll just bring home Ramya on Friday and Manasa on Sunday."   Maybe not....

We still have no idea if one of these girls will be ours, but it was amazing to get to see them, even if it was only for a few minutes.  It was reassuring and made our hearts melt, that is for sure!  Please continue to keep us, as well as each of the girls, in your prayers.  What a journey this has been so far, and it has barely begun!
