We are having a GREAT time! Sarah is very sweet and quiet( not what we're used to with the boys ...lol). She has taken to both of us and does not want us to ever put her down. She was a bit frightened of Dave at first but has slowly warmed up to him. We are so very anxious to bring her home so she can meet the rest of our family.
Guatemala and Eagles Nest are BEAUTIFUL! No lack for inspiration here! I am enjoying meeting all of my blogging friends' babies and giving them extra lovin.... it's funny, Kendall and Kate look at me as though they know me... just follow me intently as I move around the room(I think I might remind them of their mommies back home). The older kids have already bonded with David... he's become a walking jungle gym, no surprise there : )
The thing that has surprised me the most is how much I feel like I already know Sarah... just from studying her pictures for hours the last 8 mos. of her life. And yet, I realize that to Sarah... yesterday was the first time we entered her life. It made me think about how the Lord has known His children from the beginning of time and has studied our pictures(if you will) intently long before we knew Him. Our adoption seems to never stop teaching me about the vastness of God's love for us as He pursues His sons and daughters!!
Thanks for checking in... we'll post again when we get home. Blessings, Marianne and Dave
