NEW PHOTOS - Beautiful Baby Girl

Thanks to the Whitt Family (and I DO mean THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU), we have new photos of Oakley!! Can you see me smiling? That's because SHE'S smiling in a couple of the photos ... and what a beautiful smile it is. It's so good to see her looking happy and healthy. Maybe it's because she knows her family will soon be there for her.

In her little hands she holds the family photo album I put together for her. Jeff Whitt visited the orphanage, took these photos and emailed them to me. According to the Whitt's, she clung to the photo album. Imagine our delight when we could actually see her holding a photo of her three brothers (they all thought that was way cool, and I have to agree).

She's grown so much and she still looks very much like a little old soul to me. -- way beyond her two years, seven months, one week and two days old (not that I'm counting).


Blessed will be the day when we can celebrate as a family of six! My beautiful baby girl ... it won't be much longer.

PLEASE pray that we receive LOA and TA SOON!

Hi Jana,

Can you email the pictures of Oakley. All I'm getting on my computer is red x in a box. You are so lucky to get updated pictures of Oakley from the Whitts. I'm still praying for our LOA to come.

Jana, soon you will have your
little girl and be busy trying to
keep up with her. Two is such a
wonderful and challenging age at
times. Your house will soon be filled with dolls, play dishes,
and pink things. And of course,
