Although she asked "you did it?" when I said I am sorry. I said "no, but makes momma sad Chloe see this in China." She then understands I am there to comfort her and she buries herself in my side and I am able to stroke her hair and allow her to cry if she needs to. Sometimes I cry with her. I thank God that I am able to make her feel better.
I think a big thing for her also is to understand all of China is not bad. She does not need to break her tie to China and only love America. Both countries have good and bad. She is a part of both, our hope is that she can understand it is okay to like some things of both and to dislike the wrongs of both. This is life.
She, at times, needs her link to China, mainly with her bros right now, as she worries about them, she cries for them. We called only to be told they were in bed, at 8 pm? We doubted it. But she needed to talk to someone, I could see it. So she tried her roomie and friend. Not home. So then she said she recalled an older girl's number that she wanted to call but she didn't know the international number to call and I did. So between the 2 of us, we hit pay dirt. Thank You God, just when she needed this! She talked away and called again, after nicely asking if we had enough $$ to call:) She's thoughtful like that. (We have an international calling plan so I got her covered:)
We finally got her brothers on the line-I got to speak to my boys, I was probably as happy as her!! Chase sounds so mature! I was thrilled to get confirmation he does, in fact, WANT to come here. Sounds simple but I told Chloe we could not force him to come if he did not wish to. She wasn't happy with this answer but all other contact we did not get to speak to him. So we are clear now, to move forward with every attempt we can possibly make to bring him home to be our son as well as Chance. He wants to be our son- we are very happy he wants us.
Speaking of Chance , he told Chloe he cries for her:( She told him we are coming, I am so glad she can reassure him of that. Otherwise I got to tell them both, in Chinese, hello, how are you and momma loves you. Then Chloe takes my phone away and I am sure she was telling them, "that's all she can say correctly."
I just know that these 3 siblings are truly God's precious ones and He had a plan for them all along. I am so thankful we were chosen for them, that they all 3 want to be within our family as the siblings they are.
We think our new sons are going to adore Miss Kitty, I mean who can resist her anyway? Our adorable and sweet girl took the time to "smell the roses"- as we all should in life, and she declared them, "YUMMY" smelling:)
Kat and Chloe decided to pick me flower buds, till they brought me one with a BEE in it and I screamed. I told them thank you, but no more:) They laughed like a bunch of nuts watching me trying to get rid of the flower asap. Glad to have amused you dear daughters, I'll get you back for that one!
