Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Spicy, the Sequel

What are the chances, really... Today was a little like Deja vu, of the Adoption day of Mina.  A room full of children, mellow and understandably still trying to figure out how their worlds were just turned upside down. And then there is our daughters.  Running around, into everything, smiling from ear to ear, in every bodies biz-nes, Climbing, snack snatching, in our words,,, being SPICY.  In a million years I never would have expected this a second time around and Marc and I just had to look at each other and laugh, laugh so hard we could hardly breathe. I guess Kobi just secured her position as our only Mellow child, Thank God for Kobi.  He knew I needed at least one Kobi.  Finn will seriously give Mina a run for her money, I think Finn could take her out too, she is a little bruiser.Lessons learned, when we adopted Mina, I was a "baby hog" the first day or two and Marc paid big time, as Mina decided Marc should not come within 5 feet of her at any moment.  We are making sure that we split the parenting duties and so far Finn will come to both of us equally.  
Being a big Ham for the camera and the crowd.
Our adoption in Final in China's eyes!! Yippee. now the long drawn out US side of things.

Don't hold me back Mama, I was just getting started.  I got places to go, things to destroy. This scene warmed my heart.  2 Moms and their 4 beautiful Chinese daughters, back for a heritage tour.  The girls loved playing with Finn and Finn LOVED playing with them.  She would run to them with open arms and was playing peek-a-boo with them. So glad to know she loves a crowd of kids, pretty much a necessity for our house.  
Much needed rest in Mommy's arm, while we enjoyed a relaxing lunch.

Always up for playtime
