So the kids are just getting ready to go to bed and we had our nightly family prayer and then I talked to the kids about remembering to pray for Clarissa. I thought it would also be a good time to go over what's going to be coming up with the adoption, so I explained to the kids that early next year we'll get a picture in the mail of Clarissa and we'll get to learn all about her, but it will take a few more months after that before we actually get to meet her and bring her home. I told them that after we get her picture and learn about her, we'll get to send her presents in the mail to Korea and they seemed to really like that idea. We talked about things we could send her, maybe the kids could draw her a picture, or maybe we could find her a special toy or a special blanket. That sounded good to the kids and they left the room chatting with each other about what they might send Clarissa. And then I hear Matthew say "But I don't think we should send her a lion...."
Nope, probably not a lion. :)
