We have an update

I dont know what we would do without computers/internet in the adoption world. It would be a very long lonely journey. We have "met" many wonderful supportive families going through all the things we are. And some have been fortunate enough to have their new little ones at home already. Through the adoption blogging world and the adoption yahoo group I stalk regularly, one lovely family, Joe and Kay Heikes, just returned home from Ethiopia with there precious little Lulit. She is an absolute doll. Anyway, by Kay reading my posts and blog, she recognized Annsleighs Ethiopian name, Tihune. And, she met Tihune. It clicked for her when she saw our Annsleighs pictures on the blog. And, we learned a little about our little lady Annsleigh. Here is what Kay said. "I just realized I spent some time with your daughter at HOH at the end of July when we were there. You used her Ethiopian name in a recent post (Tihune) and I recognized it. I looked at your blog and her pics and there she was! I am sure others have given you info on her but she is such a doll. She has SO much personality. There is never a doubt about how she feels! She has the most expressive face and lets everyone know just how she feels. She lights up a room with her smile and breaks your heart with her pouty face :) She is a hoot....She really stood out in my mind when we picked up our little Lulit."
Well, I just want to say a great big thank you to Joe and Kay. Even amidst their excitement in uniting with their new baby girl in Ethiopia, they took the time to take it all in and notice others much loved babies still waiting. It means so much to me. Now, I feel so much better that she really is not as sad as she looks in most all her pictures. Thank you Lord!
