Just saw some video from the dear, dear people who visited Lily's orphanage.

The ADORABLE boys at the beginning of the clip are being adopted by my friend Sonia. We'll be there at the same time so I'm gonna get to see quite a bit of those sweet faces.

A few seconds into the video you'll see my oh-so-camera shy sweetie elbow make her way to the forefront. (How will we ever get her to come out of her shell??)

And then the giggles.

Oh my how I love those giggles.


  1. So as excited as I am about meeting the boys, I gotta tell ya....I am crazy excited to meet your little ball of sunshine as well! Your comment about how to get her out of her shell KAH-RACKED me up! Ha! Love it!

  2. She's got some great moves on getting to the front. Looks like she is gonna run the show in your house...

  3. Hi Angela, I just found your blog through Sonia's blog, and I hope you don't mind if I follow along! We brought our own Lilly home nearly 2 years ago from Henan Province, and I am excited to follow Sonia and you as you travel to get your precious ones very soon!

    I am especially interested in how it is adopting a slightly older child. Our LIlly turned 3 the day before we left China with her. She was the second oldest of our travel group. But I am feeling VERY drawn (much more drawn than my husband currently is, but he is not totally opposed, either...) to adopt an older child at some point in the future.

    I will be eager to read how things go as she begins her life in her new family.

    Blessings to you all!

  4. Some of the best giggles I've heard in a long time! I can imagine the giggles mingling with Lauren, Caroline and Lia's perfectly when you get her home!
