Chinese Sisters

I love these two pictures. The first was taken on the first and only night we had our sweet Lexi in our room with us. The second picture was taken on our first night with Presley. We consider them sisters and hope to someday go back to China and introduce Presley to Lexi. Or better yet, if Lexi is deemed "adoptable" by the CCAA, we can take Presley to meet Lexi in her new home!! We love both our Chinese daughters!!

I just came by your blog via the All for Lucy blog. Your family is so brave! I honestly don't know how I would have handled that situation. We just came home with our little princess and feel so blessed to have her in our lives. I know that you will always have a special place in your heart for little Lexi.
