It's not bragging, right?

I have had the biggest blessing in the past week of hearing from other people in the process of adopting children who have met our daughter in Ethiopia when they traveled for their own court date. It has been so wonderful to learn more about her personality!

And since I had absolutely nothing to do with shaping who she is right now, it's not bragging to share the great things I've heard about our girl in Ethiopia, right?

She's been described as always smiling, gorgeous, lovable, social, confident, happy, charming. And she loves to be held, hugged, cuddled, and kissed!

Can I just say how proud I am of this little girl? If I'd been through what she has been through, I'd be curled up in a corner of the orphanage. But, not this girl, she has chosen (whether it's a conscious decision at age 2 or not, it's still a decision she made) to be lovely, smiley, and happy. I'm grateful and honored to even be considered to be her mommy!

I really can't wait to be the one holding her, I pray that God protects her sweet spirit until we can get to her and bring her home!
