Note to self: SLEEP NOW!

We got a medical update on Delaney, along with many pictures. These pictures were much better than the last ones. She looks more like her happy, curious self.

I SO WISH I COULD SHOW YOU. But it's against the rules. This is the best I can do.
















She's had a haircut. She crawls. She makes funny faces. She is ADORABLE.

In the medical update the foster mother notes she doesn't sleep very much. She gets up between 4 and 5 every morning.

Oh no.

And she wakes up easily. If there's noise or anything.

Oh no.

And she still wakes up at night for a bottle.

Oh mylanta. This is going to be work! I don't drink coffee, but I might have to start.

She also sweats a lot so the foster mother says she has to bathe her often. Um, HILARIOUS. Can't wait to get on over to Korea and add this little lady to our family!

  1. She looks absolutely adorable! What an exciting journey to go through! I'd love to hear more about your process to motherhood if you felt comfortable sharing. I'm currently going through fertility treatments so it's close my heart.

  3. Thanks Lisa--and Lisa! lol

    Long story short, we've been trying to create our family for 6.5 years. We've almost never taken a break. We've always been either trying to get pregnant (naturally or through a fertility cycle), pregnant, or in the process of adopting.

    We adopted our oldest son from Guatemala. Our second son was a successful pregnancy (he was #5 out of 10 total pregnancies). Now we're adopting this little girl from Korea. It's been an adventure with a lot of heartache along the way to say the least, but we're absolutely thrilled with our kids.

    Some day I hope to write out the whole experience on this blog.

    Thanks for reading!
