LID !!! WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!


The sun is shining, the kids aren't arguing, my pediatrician gave me a go ahead on three little girls on the COP list, and yes, MY LID CAME TODAY - 2/28/07. One huge step closer to Maggie Bright ____ Oatsvall. Let the count down begin! This is a picture the day we got Emily sitting in the hotel in Changsha. I can't wait to hold my Maggie and put a pink bow in her hair.

Sorry for my ignorance....but can you tell me more about the COP list? What is that and the three little girls on it?

GWEN OATSVALL said...

jeanne, the cop list is the children of promise list that is made up of children with special needs. some needs are minor, some cosmetic, and some are major. we just pray over the list and decide what we as a family can hanlde the make a request. we made a request today for 3 girls and we could get picked for one or not picked at all. the list comes out ever 6-8 weeks.

It's nice to keep up to date on you guys; I got your blog name from Crystal's. I always ask about everyone in TN that I know of.

That's just awesome that ya'll started adopting. I pray for you every day that you get your Maggie. Emily is gorgeous; I keep re-playing her AI video.

God Bless you all.
