Maggie is still on China time. We are making sure she does not sleep past 3 PM and she is NOT happy about it. She cries and just really wants to sleep so bad and I really just want to snuggle with her and watch her sleep. But.... we are pushing through this and hoping and praying she will switch over to Alabama time. Maggie was sleeping all through the night in China, so I know she can do it. She has had so many changes in her little life.
We have been so blessed by our friends here. They have been bringing us dinner every night and it sure has made us feel so good and loved. I feel certain, we would be eating out every night if we didn't have the meals coming. Thankfully, Chuck is off work this week and we are taking turns sleeping and staying up with Maggie.
I have LOTS of pictures of our sweet girl to post, but will have to do that later. Maggie is doing so good ! She is in LOVE with her daddy and thanks he is so funny ( we do too !). She is tolerating me right now and I just keep holding and loving on her. We know that this is "normal" for her to do and bonding takes time and patience. A friend asked how it felt to have a daughter that is adopted ? Chuck and I both agree - It feels just the same as having our biological boys. We love her just the same, no less than if I carried her for nine months. What a wonderful example of God's Love for us !!!
