Oh, be still my heart.

As some of you may know, I pretty much had my mind up that I wanted to adopt again but not for another year or two. So I kept away from the waiting child lists on purpose so I wouldn't see our second daughter on them. Well, I couldn't control myself and looked at a few lists and BAM !! There she was *sigh*. She is 4 yrs old and absolutely beautiful. She has the same type of Cerebral Palsy that Malia does and it seems to be a mild form just like Malia's. Her birthday is 9/19/03, that would be 17 days after mine. She can walk, has already had surgery to lengthen her achilles tendon and move the anterior tibial muscles tendon.
I had it in my mind that I wanted to adopt a child born within 6 months of Malia so that they could "grow up" together but this little girl REALLY pulls at my heart strings. She is listed with Small World Adoptions and they have her listed as "Noel". I really don't think I'm going to get the RHW (Reluctant husband waiver) but I did show him her file, and he didn't say no. He does NOT want to go back to China and I told him he wouldn't have to go. I can find someone else to go with me. I know Megan would jump at the chance to go again :)
So for all who will, please pray that I can get the RHW !!

OMW!!! I will pray for this! Small World is an awesome agency and is on my list of the few I would use if not CCAI. Kathy (their SN coordinator is soooo sweet).My friend has used them and loves, loves, loves them! I looked at their list earlier today, but am going over now to peek at the little girl you are mentioning. Oky, now you have to keep me updated via e-mail or something.
Come on, Gary...pleeeeease-pretty pleeeease! : )
