Growing so Fast...

We received a long awaited update on Lauren Thursday December 20th which happened to also be my brother's 30th birthday!!  I was so excited!!  I had been praying to get the update before Christmas and thankfully we did!  Lauren is healthy and doing well.  It was exciting to read about her routine and things she likes and dislikes.  I was hoping to see her smile but no luck in any of our new pictures.  They did say in the update that she won't smile when strangers are around, I was glad they addressed that and it made me feel better.  I told Jason that when we actually do see her smile it will be that much more special. :)

I have never been through something that has given me such conflicting emotions like adoption.  With each step there's happiness and sadness. I am excited that we got new pictures and information but when I saw how much Lauren has grown it made me sad to realize that she is growing up without us.  She needs to come home soon...
