One lucky MAMA & DADA!!

I can't believe it!!! We just got this video clip from Cathy who was at Olivia's orphanage during Christmas (She's in pink). We can't believe that she actually got footage of Olivia. We feel soooooooooo blessed!!! I just had to wake Kirk up and we can't stop watching it!

One happy and sappy mama!!!!!!

That's wonderful. She's adorable. It must be comforting to see her being held by someone who's obviously involved and caring. She's being well cared for while waiting for you.

How special will that be forever. Just think in a few years when Olivia is home and older you will be able to show that to her and show how well loved she was in China.
