All in all, a fun way to spend a Saturday!
Wednesday, July 04, 2007
We hung out with our friends Elizabeth and Andrew. They're actually more like cousins since their grandmother is Beth, who travelled to China with me and who Hannah calls "Nana". They live in Huntsville, so it's always a special treat when they come to Birmingham.
We also had a really fun day visiting with another family in the process of adopting two precious children. Laine and Rob are adopting a boy and a girl (Kimmie and Quan) from Hannah's orphanage. They leave in less than two weeks! Laine and I have communicated by e-mail for a while, and Tuesday, we headed to Sprinville to meet her and her sweet kids. Rob was at work, and we're sorry we missed him, but we do plan to go back and meet Kimmie and Quan one day! We had such a good time at their house. Hannah was in her element as there were 4 children older than her who let her basically do whatever she wanted! She played and played, and then enjoyed hot dogs and chips with the Ferrill children. After lunch, we headed to the pool. Hannah had a blast. I don't really know how long they swam, but it was good long while. Hannah enjoyed playing and I enjoyed visiting with Laine. Here's the girls eating lunch.

It's a fish! Oh wait, I only thought it was a fish because it didn't want to get out of the water at all. It's really Hannah!
Thanks Laine for the great hospitality! And Katie Lyn, Carley, Colby, and Clay - thanks for making Hannah feel so welcome and at home! You are amazing brothers and sisters and I know you will enrich Kimmie and Quan's lives even as they enrich yours at the same time! Hannah is still talking about y'all!
