Pre-surgery Thoughts and Pictures

The Brady Bunch minus one boy and Alice. Where is Alice? I could really use her help now!
One of her many hilarious facial expressions showing the joy she must have in her heart!

Lilly loves taking other people's glasses so we gave her some of her own! She wore them just long enough to take a picture or two. She loves her swing now and likes to go high!

Lilly is doing very well and has been having lots of fun especially when she is outside! She has been keeping all of us smiling and laughing at her adorable expressions. She is such a little ham, and we are so in love with her. It is so evident that God was in control of our adoption. She fits in perfectly with our family and as my sister said "How could you ask for more?". We couldn't. We are blessed to have her as our daughter (and sister) and so grateful that God brought us together to be a family. I am also grateful to her "China Mom" for giving her life and risking perhaps her own life to leave Lilly in a safe place.
Surgery is still scheduled for this coming Wednesday. We will update as we are able. Thank you for your thoughts and concern but especially for your prayers.

Many are praying that Lilly's rash will go away and that surgery will still be on time Wed. What a joy she is!
We love you,

What a sweetheart. Those are great pictures. I love the sunglasses one!

We will be praying for Lilly. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help out. She is such a sweetie pie!

I hope we can all get together for some fun after we return from China and Lilly is feeling better!
We should receive our sweet girl on July 23. :) Our TA came in Friday!!!!

Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers today. I know this is going to be an emotional day. Praying that every person with Lilly today will find God's hand guiding them to do exactly what needs to be done to repair her tiny heart.
