Ladybugs, Ladybugs, Everywhere!!!

For those of you who don't know Ladybugs are a symbol of good luck in China. Last night our friend Kim presented me, Michelle (Meaghan Grace's mom), Joanne (Mia's mom), and Lisa (Paige's mom), each with a precious little ceramic Ladybug. It was such a thoughtful gesture! I came home and put her on the window sill in my kitchen where I can see her everyday. Thank you Kim :)

Then this morning something so weird happened. We all sitting down for breakfast (that's weird enough--that we were ALL eating breakfast together!!!). I looked up and saw what I thought was a ladybug in between the window and the screen. I got up to look and there were 6 ladybugs between the window and the screen!!! One for each of us--Me, Brian, Brianna, Jason, Ella, and "Wen". I'm still getting tears in my eyes thinking about it! Thank you God for your never ending confirmation of what I already know--we were all meant to be a family.

We opened the window and took out the screen to set them free. If you look closely there are three of them in this picture.
One flew onto Ella and was crawling on her PJ's. Can you see her on Dora?
They're all free!!

so true. Those lady bug sitings are definately meaningful. On that same day, there was a ladybug on my shoulder down at the ball field.....Hmmmmm.

Now, if we could just move along the process a little quicker.....i's time for Wen to be united with his family!
