So What Do The Boys Think ?



I am OFTEN asked ' So, what do the boys think about Maggie" ?

The boys are so happy about having a sister. They love her with as much love that a seven and an eight year old boy can understand. They blow her "kisses" and pray she can feel them all the way in China. They pray for her, think of games to play with her when she comes home and talk about how beautiful she is. Maggie is their sister, and they are already very protective of her, as big brothers should be.

Will wrote this note the other day and gave it to me. I though it was so sweet !

Every time our kids do China prayers I start crying. It's so sweet to see everyone be involved in the adoption process in their own ways at their own age levels. Your boys will make great big brothers, she is one lucky girl;)

My kiddos ask all the time when will we get our baby? Its so sweet to see them loving her even when we don't know her.

That is TOO sweet! Doesn't the heart of your children make you melt? My kids have been so incredibly sweet about their "Chinese sister". It makes me so happy!

I just wanted to tell you thank you for the reminder on my blog. I know that I will look back on our journey and see how it was all a part of God's plan to bring Jessica home. I need to keep remembering that when I get so impatient. Thanks again for the refreshing words of encouragement!

I think this is beautiful. It about brings tears to my eyes, because our 7 year old only son traveled with us to China and when he saw his sister for the 1st time, he was crying. He loves her so much and I often say, they act like they have been together forever, somedays they are picking, but most days, hugging eachtoher. What a Gift!
