These two little cuties spent the first year of their life together in the SWI pictured below. Ella is on the right and her buddie Sam is on the left. They were born just weeks apart, had the same Ayi, same schedule and seem to be in several pictures together. They were both part of the Waiting Child Program and went home to their forever families just weeks apart. Sam's Mommy and I became good friends while we were waiting to travel and were sure that we would travel at the same time for our little ones. The CCAA had different plans, though and we did not travel at the same time....which was hard at the time. How nice it would have been for these two to have had each other nearby as they transitioned to their new families.
They live many states away from us and over the past 3 years, we have tried on several occasions to get Sam and Ella together, but it just has not worked out....the distance is far enough that it is hard to do.
To say we were THRILLED when they came for a visit yesterday, was an understatment!!! Our Mommy hearts were filled with joy to see Fu Li She and Fu Li Yuan together again!!! Aren't they adorable?
The picture below has Sam's beautiful big sister Emma...and Sophie who decided to take a dive as I was taking the picture.
Tomorrow, I will be in the hospital and have to be under anesthesia for a procedure that needs to be done prior to my surgery. Kind of part 1 of the surgery....the doctor needs to get measurements and such to prepare for the surgery. If you could keep me in prayer in the morning, I would so appreciate it!
Be Blessed, my friends!!!
