2 more days until Shriner's....







I am on pins and needles! Every time I think about Wednesday, I get a lump in my throat!!! I look at Linzhi and PRAISE GOD she's ours and now we get to see what the Lord has in store for this precious angel. We also discovered (tears welling up) our Linzhi is LEFT handed... We've gone 7 months thinking she was a right handed girl because we would put crayons, spoons, forks, etc... in her hands because she couldn't. Well, now Miss Linzhi can do it herself and she favors her left hand. When I saw her take the crayon out of her right hand( after mama put it there )and move it to her left hand, I was overcome with joy and emotion. I know this may seem trivial to some but ask any parent with a special needs child how it feels when they witness any miracle they thought or was told would be impossible. When we were given Linzhi's file, we were warned nicely that she would probably never be an independent person. Our understanding is her file was returned twice because of the negative reports back from the American doctors who reviewed her file for the families interested. Believe it or not, this information did not scare CJ or me at all. Actually, we felt this fire ball of protection over her immediately and when we opened her file and looked at her face for the first time BOTH CJ and I knew that was the angel God chose to be our daughter. And now, we get to witness the miracle of our Linzhi being blessed by the one who created her perfectly. See... ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD.

I guess I'm a sentimental Mama today...

I got chills reading your post-a mother's intinct is so protective. Good Luck with Shriner's-will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. I am amazed that you were told Linzhi would not live an independant life because after reading your "Linzhi Rose" post-she seems to have a stubborn little spirit that will take her far in life. Your family is adorable.
