Her name is Lila and I will tell a little more of her story soon.
Without further ado....Here is our soon to be 3 year old daughter! We are in love!

The Belkin Family Lookout Farm in Natick has THE BEST Asian pears! They are a cross between an apple & a pear. So, so yummy! We spent the day there yesterday picking lots of pears & apples (And eating them, we couldn't resist!) There was so much to see & do for the little kids. Pony & camel rides, moon bounce, face painting, farm animals, playground, magic shows, train rides......And of course walking around the beautiful orchards. Definitely worth the trip!

Two years ago today we were in Guangzhou, China meeting Lily for the first time. Remembering that time makes my heart melt & brings a smile to my face. She is a beautiful treasure! This video is from tonight after our "Family day" Chinese dinner. Each year we celebrate this special day by using the beautiful tea set we bought while we were in Guangzhou & we put up Chinese lanterns and eat Chinese food. The kids love it. We love it. I think Lily really loves it. Her song says it all if you listen carefully (silence the music at the bottom of this page). Family.............

We spend most of our time on Sandy Neck Beach. We love driving out (4X4) on the beach & spending the day, or at night having a bonfire. So relaxing & beautiful.

Now with all that said this next statement will make you think I am crazy, have lost it, gone bananas, loco, nuts. You ready? I want to adopt again. I look at children from China needing families everyday on adoption websites. A piece of my heart was left in China when we adopted Lily. I want to do it again. I often wonder if we can do it again physically, financially, emotionally. I don't know if we can. I can't stop feeling like we need to do this again. Adopting one more child will not change the statistics of the 147 million orphans in the world. It will drastically change the life of that one child though. Now I just need to get my husband on board. This will not be an easy task. He is feeling more overwhelmed than I am. I can only pray he will open his heart one more time to adoption. Right now I don't think it is in our family's immediate future or ever . Again, one can hope...... I will leave this post with a few pictures of the last few months.
