Oh be still my heart
Today I got the video of my Annelise in the mail complete with an updated progress report on her and new pictures!! Be still my heart! I started shrieking when I saw the fedex man because I had been waiting on him all morning. I immediately threw the video in the player and watched in awe at Annelise playing with toys, scooching toward toy after toy then eating toys and making smacking noises with her lips. Oh my gosh, she is so adorable!!!! Then I watched as her foster mom gave her kisses and cuddled with her. How it did my heart good to see that! How will I ever repay that kind woman who is loving on my baby? She will forever be in my prayers! Then I showed Daniel the video when he got home around lunchtime and as I put on fb "I visibly watched him fall in love with her." It was amazing. She is amazing and we are so so blessed.
These pictures were taking a little over a week ago. :) I can tell how she is bigger, but in the video she still looks like such a baby to me. I pray it will not be long now until we travel.......

That is so cool that you got a video!! We only got our referral pics and then we got another set of pics when we went to visit Holden. We also got an album from the FM of pics of him when he was itty bitty and that was it. I have made up for all those months without pics, I have 3 albums full already, each one holds 400 pics. lolReplyDelete
Love it!!! You must look at those pics 1000 times a day. I remember keeping pics of Lily in my car. She is beautiful.ReplyDelete
Wow...how awesome that you already received more photos & a video too?! Awesome. (I'm a bit jealous...all we ever got were 2 photos at the time of referral). She is adorable!! I know what you mean...these foster mothers are amazing. We have photos of D with his FM in frames around the house. She will forever be a part of our family.ReplyDelete
