What Makes a Dad, God took the strength of a mountain, The majesty of a tree, The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea, The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night, The wisdom of the ages, The power of the eagle's flight, The joy of a morning in spring, The faith of a mustard seed, The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need, Then God combined these qualities, When there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete, And so, He called it ...

An Update From The Director Of Katie's SWI!

I received the email from the orphanage director this morning. I am disappointed that he didn't send any updated pictures of your daughter. The director wrote that according to the regulations of international adoption, the SWI cannot directly send information or pictures of the children to adoption agencies or families. He wrote that he has received the care packet you sent (including the camera and presents). Ni Yi Fei is physically healthy and is developing well. She can walk independently. She is bright and lovely and can say some simple words. The director asked me to let you know not to worry.

I guess we will ALL be suprised, when WE recieve her. Thanks again Diana for bringing the pic to life on the header of her. So we actually have three pics! But they must be over a year old now. EVEN MORE EXCITING was to hear she's HEATHLY, that's the MOST important thing!!!

We Had A Fun Week!!

We started off with a little party for Katie, fabric shopping and I chose the fabric for the back of the quilt and other fabric for the edges. I cant wait to see the finished product if there is anyone who would like to contribute to Katie's quilt. Please send me an email. This past weekend, we had some friends over for a swim and also went with a few couples and the kiddos to Westgate which was a blast. I was told by a little birdie that I should be recieving some updated photos of our little Katie as soon as I get them I will post some photos. I was told by Angela at Ladybugsnlove that Katie did recieve our carepackage. Enjoy the photo's from the party and our trip to Westgate where we took our Chinese beauties to Johnny Rockets. I hope you all have a great week. I'm sorry about the spacing of the picks. I'm still getting use to the fancy stuff on our new blog.

It's Katie's birthday in China right now!!

I've done nothing but think about our precious little girl today and wish that we were with her celebrating, not that she know's that it's her birthday. After being blessed by our first daughter I never would of dreamed that this was going to happen to Kelly and I again. We are just so darn lucky! If I hadn't been at my agencie's Yahoo Group at the exact minute the shared list came down, this wouldn't of been possible. I will forever be grateful! It was this time last summer
that I knew that we were not done. We are having a little birthday party for her tommarow and I cant wait to see the kids having a good time. I'm getting up super early to make cupcakes for them to decorate and each one of them will have a candle, so they can make a wish for Katie. My only wish is that she's healthy and happy.

The Last Few Days!!!

It was nice on Thursday morning I corresponded with Angela from, Kelly, Allie, I sent a carepackage to Katie for her birthday. I'm really hoping that we can get some updated photos and info. I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst, her SWI does not like to give any extra info or pics out before travel. It was nice later that day our cousins Julie & Alex came out and we went to Babies R Us to get registered for our family shower in September.

Today were having a BBQ and swim at our house. Sunday were looking forward to relaxing. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend, and thank you for coming to our new blog.

Well Were Up And Running!!!

First I have to thank Diana of Custom Blog Designs who made my

vision into a reality. When I spoke with

her several months ago I told her I needed

to do a blog-change to include our newest

blessing from China. This blog captures

just that. I will be using this blog instead

of Life With Allison And Sassie for most

of my posts. But please feel free to look

at our other blog.

We got the best news this week about

Allie's heart murmur, it's innocent so

the doctor is not worried. We will be

going to get an XRAY just in case.

This week will be a busy one as I

will be spending some time with

my Father and Cousin, we have

a BBQ at our house on Saturday

I will also be getting ready for

Katie's birthday party on Tuesday

Just because she's not here doesn't

mean we cant celebrate. I saw this

on an episode of I Love Lucy when

Lucy had a party for Little Ricky

while he was back in New York

and they were in Italy. I will

take pics & some video. We

have about 13-kids comming

and it will be at Aunt Selina's

& Uncle Danny's. I will put the

pics under "For Katie"

Enjoy the new pic of our precious

Katherine Elizabeth Yi
