More thoughts and pictures

I know that Thomas' story is a crazy one but I am glad to say it is a very rare one. I have had a lot of time to think about his story since I have known about it for over a month and another agci family asked me the other day if I would use AGCI again. The answer is yes. I really loved our experience with AGCI and yes it was frustrating at times but that is how adoption is. I would ask more questions and I would be more upfront about my expectations from them. I just want families out there to be informed and know the ups and downs because it isn't always a fairy tale. I really do think AGCI wants the best for the children they represent and I don't think that they are trying to be malicious or harmful to families. How did this all happen then? Unfortunately I don't know the answer to that question but I do know that shedding light on what goes wrong in adoption can help us all learn how to make it better.....

Anyways here are some more pictures of Olivia. We have been having a great time these last few weeks:)

I love love love the highchair pic...TOO CUTE! I think so much of adoption is accumulating the information, processing it, and seeking God for His leading....

This is how most people feel when they get home. We have prayed to see what our role is and we are getting answers.

Thanks for the pictures!
