A Paper-Pregnant Mother's Day

We are so excited to tell the world - we're paper pregnant again!

That's right, we decided that it is time to add another Morningstar to our wild and wonderful crew and have started the paperwork process for international adoption from China! We are so excited to meet and welcome and love our new little one and, Lord willing, hope to bring her home in spring of 2011.

1001 more details to come, decisions to be made, papers to be filed... but for today I rest in simple gratitude for the three amazing children already in my arms and the one that for now I can only hold in my heart.

Congratulations Morningstars!!How exciting for all of you. And I have to say Jamie, I was wondering if that was the case since I saw your question on one of the boards about a "new" homestudy. It was kind of like seeing a friend by a pregnancy test but not sure if you should mention it. Now I can say - good for you!!!

Happy Mother's Day!
Lou Ann & Lexie too

LOVE IT!!!! Will it be a 'special needs' waiting kiddo? (that seems weird to type that but adoption mamas know what that means so I will trust you don't think I'm being rude/obnoxious ;) )I cannot wait to hear the details!!

Wow that is great!! Wish there were more people like you in the world! I was just thinking today, I wish we could go back and get Sayat, the sweetest little guy in Lera's room...but we just can't. Too old, too broke ;-)
ALL THE BEST to you - that is one lucky little girl over there in China, and I know you all will be so blessed. Hope things go smoothly for you all, many best wishes.

I too was wondering if this was what was going on after seeing some of your posts on one of the yahoo groups.....
So so so happy for all of you!! This little girl doesn't know it yet, but she's SOOOOOOO lucky to be a Morningstar some day!!
*hugs* to all of you

Wow! I can't believe it. You Morningstars have so much room in your hearts and family! Paper Pregnant (very cute), I hadn't heard that before, but of course I haven't really been introduced to adoption or anything about it, except for you and the Stacklers. We wish and pray for the best!
