Kite Day / Paul William's Shower

Kite Day!! April 28, 2007

Thanks to the Sandlin family for allowing our Athens, Al Families with Children from China (AL,FCC) group to have Kite day at their home!!!!!

Well, Sat. April 28, was our very first Kite day. Even though the wind didn't give us much, we still had fun. Kites Kites and more Kites....Does anyone need a Kite?? lol

We had a nice time, like always! We had a lovely shower for Greg and Mary Louise Ogle. They will soon be going to China to bring home their son, Paul William. Paul is a very cute little boy. He is so lucky to have sweet parents. We are so excited to have another little boy in our FCC group.

We will also have a new little girl home from China! Lily Mei's wonderful parents are Steve and Monica Carter. She should be home about the same time as Paul William.

Congrtaulations Ogle & Carter Families!!!

Here William Woodall runs with his kite. He is waiting for his little sister to come home from China. The Woodall's LID was in Jan'06. We are waiting right along with them. We have about 9 waiting families in our little FCC family.
Russ had a friend from work join us on our wonderful kite day. They are just starting to seek information about Chinese adoptions. If any of our friends or family have any questions about Chinese adoptions and want to find out what you need to do to get started with you Chinese adoption, we would love for you to join us at any of our great events and teach you as much as we can. I just don't know how I would handle this long wait if it were not for all my WONDERFUL friends I have made in our FCC Family. We have such a STRONG support from each other. I love my FCC Family with all my heart!!!!

A Poem to Alison

Kisses in the Wind
I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that is how is seems.
I know you wonder where we are….. What is taking so long?
But remember child, We love you so, and God will keep you strong.
Now go outside and feel the breeze, let it touch your skin.
Because tonight, just like always, I blow kisses in the wind.
May God hold you in his hand until we can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, We are doing all we can do.
Very soon, you will have a family for real, not just pretend.
But for tonight, just as always, I blow kisses in the wind.
May God wrap you in his arms and hold you very tight,
And let the angels bring you the kisses that I send to you each night.
