Wild Times

At the Zoo!

What a great night we had
with good friends Alex and Olivia
and their wonderful Mom Debbie

Sasha was not very interested in the animals,
she said "no" and "bye bye" 
to the anteaters
and the ostrich
and she did not care to see any animals at all
(I think it was a little scary)
but what a great time she had 
running and playing and laughing!
Debbie is a special lady
while I was waiting to travel to China to adopt Sasha 
she reached out to me, a complete stranger
and invited me to meet her for coffee
I listened while she shared her stories, 
stories that gave me a much needed dose of courage
she is a wonderful person
and I am grateful for her wisdom 
and she has a lot of wisdom to share
Sasha and Olivia have a lot in common,
they both came home to their Forever Families 
at around the same age
and they have the same middle name!
and they are both very beautiful 
Olivia watched over Sasha on the playground

Ava Rose and Alex were busy climbing and posing

sheer joy

Olivia took a little break
and they were off and running!

what a wonderful summer night
