I went out to eat with my sister and I started thinking about all the things I need to do. I need to finish the girls room, by a baby bed, carseat, and prepare to leave for China. I then started thinking about if Clare got sick, what would I do. I was worried about giving her Tylenol, Adivil or an antibiotic?????? It hit me, this is no different from bringing home any of my children. I had to test each of my children with these drugs and that I had only known each of them, outside of my belly, for a short time. Clare is no different, except for the fact she is 5 years old and on the other side of the world. It is scary, very scary to me. But I will soon board a plane and go and get my Chinese Butterfly!!!!!!!
Here are pictures from her 5th birthday party!!!!!
They told me that she was not interested in wearing her hat, until after her party was over!!
I enlarge this one, so you could see the beautiful cake they bought her for her birthday.
Clare we are coming, very soon, to get you. We love you and can't wait to get to China!!
