Take a close look
Notice anything between those two sets of photos?
The first two are Emma, the day I got custody of her in Ukraine. The first is her very first ride on an airplane, the second right before her first ever bath.
The second two are Lynae, taken on Wednesday night. One she’s playing, the second she’s sacked out COLD.
The similarities? Lynae, at 13 months and SMALL for her size… is wearing the pajama that Emma, at 5 YEARS OLD wore home from Ukraine. (I don’t have any pic’s of Emma in that sleeper other than those, because 1- it was HARD to take pic’s when I was alone! and 2- she wore it as an under-layer since it was FREEZING…
And this is what it’s all about. Why I can never let the orphan stop breaking my heart. Because as soon as we can turn cold to THIS, I don’t even want to know. This is real. This is MY KIDS. And SO many others that are still waiting.
