Where Are You Baby?

Been thinking about where our little Olivia is today. Is she north or south, east or west? Is she in Hunan like Ava was before she came home? Is she cool enough, it's hot in southern China. Did someone pick her up today? Did some nice nanny give her a kiss as she fed her or is her bottle hung on the crib? Did she get to play with her little friends today? Did she get to feel the sunshine on her face? I'm only torturing myself I know, I must turn it over and have faith she is fine...as fine as she can be.

If I had to guess I would say she is in the south. That is my prediction for today. Somewhere in the pretty south of China, maybe on a nice river with a breeze flowing through the orphanage windows.

Just hope she is safe and well cared for and being told Mommy and Daddy are coming soon.

I am sure she is fine and waiting for the day that you will pick her up. I really enjoy your blog and will check it often. I found this poem and though I don't know you from Adam I thought you might get comfort out of it.

A red thread to China was cast today
From us to a child so far away.
This thread symbolizes an attachment of hearts
That distance alone can’t keep us apart.

Her mother and I are caught in a chase
That time alone will bring us to face

This loving young child we want so much to greet
With love in our hearts before we did meet.

This tiny, thin thread may stretch, tangle or fray
But our love for her grows stronger each day.
Through the test of time it won’t break or sever
She’ll be part of us forever and ever.

With oceans between us, the distance is spanned
By a love that is greater than man could have planned.
For God in His mercy loved her and us
And decided our family would be a great plus.

So for now we’ll just love her and pray every day
That God keeps her and loves her for us till we may
Travel to China, that land of great past,
To the side of our daughter, to hold her at last.
