Awaiting Maggie


As most of you know, we are awaiting our second daughter from China. Her name is going to be Maggie after my grandmother. Our papers are currently in translation right now and then our DTC and LID to follow. I want to share something with you that may sound a little crazy. On June 4, 2004 (I had to double check the date in Emily's journal)I had an emotional breakdown. I cried all day and just knew that our daughter was born. And when we got our referral for Emily and it said that her birthday was June 15th and she was found at about one month old, I knew I was right. They were guessing on her birthday. Well as most of you know, we have requested an 18-24 month this time in hopes of keeping Emily and Maggie closer in age. I say all that to say that Sept. 21st, 2006, I had the same feeling. I cried for about 2 hours and had that overwhelming feeling that Maggie was born. Since we won't travel till approx. Sept. 2008, then she would be about 2yrs. old ... Who knows if I am right or not, but I knew you all would understand. We have a connection to our daughters that can only be explained by God. And what a mighty God we serve. So as our hearts grow heavy and our hearts ache, we can rest assured that He is caring for our daughters till we get there.

That is SO true Gwen - now we'll wait to see if your "hunch" was correct - Hey - it was fun chatting last night - call anytime - needing help or not!!!

Aww! So glad to hear from you now on a daily basis. Since I am not a mom I can't really connect to the emotional breakdown thing but can to the love of our daughter, or in my case sister! :) Hang in there!
