Hello everyone!

Well I have decided to retire this blog and create a new one that is dedicated to both my girls. Since this blog is "Hurry home Lexie" and my other was "Searching for Janie" I feel that I need a new one since my girls are finally home and together (at last)!!! 

The new blog has a special title.....of course my last name is incorporated and these girls are the sunshine of my life. So the new blog is:

You can access it by clicking on the address or clicking HERE.

I am still working on the layout but will hopefully have a new post soon. Good-bye to this blog. I didn't really use it much since I used the other most often but it has been nice documenting all the steps of this journey.

HERE we go again!!

We are at the Atlanta airport waiting for the flight. It leaves at 11:00 and heads to Tokyo then on to Taiwan.

I started a blog for Lexie, but will keep all Taiwan activity on the other one (Janie's) since most of my family/friends find it easier...then when I am home, I will combine both blogs into one for the girls!!!

Update & Great News

Janie here:
Mommy isn't looking so I thought I would post an update about me and my little sister, Lexie.

On my adoption blog there are some pictures from this past weekend. You can find it HERE

Now for the exciting news about my little sister, Lexie!!! This morning when mommy got me up she told me that Lexie's first ruling came in! Yep, you read that right-just 11 days after the court hearing! Mommy says it must be an all-time record. Of course, she must be forgetting the past 7 weeks of re-scheduled courts....but all of that is behind us! Lexie is going to be coming home soon. Mommy says we now have to wait for the final ruling and then we will get an appointment with the AIT and go get Lexie. She told me that I went thru all the same process-I don't really remember any of that, but if she says so then I guess it happened.

She also told me about the big plane we are going to go on--and she told me all the things she is bringing to entertain me for the LONG flight. Then she told me that I am going to get to see all my loved ones in Taiwan again AND I will get to see my birth mom again. 

Mommy seems very emotional about that. She is glad that she will have the opportunity to ask my birth mom some more questions. I hear her praying for my birth mom a lot. Mommy always prays that my birth mom has peace and comfort in her life. I am not sure if I will get to see my birth dad again or not? 

Well, I am not allowed to show you a picture of Lexie yet--but I can give you a sneak peak. Everyone says she looks alot like me!
