Wo Ai Ni ( I love you Mommy)
PBS has a documentary on adoption that is very good. I watched it yesterday and cried the. entire. time. It is about a family adopting an eight year old girl ( with special needs) from China. The girl is from Guangdong province, which is where Maggie is from. A lot of the footage of China is exactly what we saw and experienced. Also, the Civil Affairs building in Guangdong where the family meets their daughter for the first time is also where we met Maggie for the first time. The movie shows the reality of adopting an older child and the struggles that both the little girl and her family have. The movie is streaming online until Nov. 30, 2010. Go here to watch it.
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:3
