"I LUVA his shoes "
We had a very busy weekend . Friday Gemma had her blood transfusion , Saturday Lucy had her First Holy Communion and today (Sunday ) we participated in Brittany's Hope Walk Of Love in PA .
Gemma is feeling much better now that her Hemaglobin has increased to a safe level .
Teresa was feeling very tired on Saturday but today she was much better .
Lucy was soooo excited to make her first communion . She said she feels VERY Holy now. It was a very special day for her . Teresa keeps asking when it will be her turn . Teresa was upset because she could not wear her wedding gown and marry Jesus ( this was her interpretation of a first communion ).
The walk of love was an amazing day . Brittany's Hope is a wonderful organization that gives adoption grants to special needs orphans around the world . Emilia was a recipient of a BH grant when we adopted her . The grant helps to cover a portion of the enormous adoption expenses . Last year Emilia was one of the poster children for the organization and this year the girls had the privilege of holding the Chinese flag ( representing China ) for the walk . They were all so proud !
We also had time to catch up with some dear friends we had met through our adoptions. Kelly R. Is an amazing women getting ready to adopt 2 more special needs sons from
China . We met for the first time a very special person who was so helpful in having Teresa's medical information reviewed in America and getting her the medical care she needed while in China . It was only by chance that we ran into each other but I think it was divine intervention . She is a very special person who also has a daughter with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome . We shared lots of information and I enjoyed hearing of how she knew Teresa In China .

Tomorrow is the start of another very busy week . We will head back to Sinai Hospital for Emilia's Legs to be checked . We are hopeful the bones are healing well with no complications.
I am so grateful to have these children God has blessed us with . Even though their medical care seems so enormous at times, it is a very small sacrifice to make. Just to be able to see them smile and be filled with so much happiness makes it all worth it .
