I have been so excited for you!! How is Lovely??? Is she home yet? Can’t wait to see pictures of a remarkable little girl blessed with a remarkable family to call her own!8 April, 2011 at 2:53 am #654767
Lovely is amazing. We are all bowled over by her. I am wandering around in a goofy fog. 😀
Our daugher and son-in-love got to meet her in the Portland area last Thursday. Things went so well that the foster parents suggested that they take her out on their own on Friday for a few hours. They visited my Mom in Vancouver, WA which got my sister who lives next door to her involved. Next thing I know I’m getting a phone text from my sister telling me to jump on the highway and get up to Vancouver to meet Lovely. So, I did.
Lovely lives up to her name. She has beautiful big brown eyes. Her skin is a beautiful rich shade of brown. She weights about 30 pounds and looks good in anything she wears. She is a happy, healthy nearly two-year-old.
Daughter and son-in-love visited over several days after meeting her and welcomed her to their home in Eugene on Tuesday. First night was rough. She slept from 7pm to 1am then started crying. Daughter got up with her and she settled down, laying on daughter and finally falling asleep again at 4am. Last night she slept clear through the night.
You’ve got to be careful when you ask me for information about my new granddaughter. I could go on and on……. 😉

This had to be the world’s longest “pregnancy.” Daughter and son-in-love started the process of being approved as adoptive parents two years ago. They were finally approved in January, saw Lovely’s photo and asked to be considered for her. Their application and at least two other family’s applications went through a committee decision process and they found out they had been selected on March 25 and were to meet their new daughter on the 31st. You should have seen daughter and I kick into high gear shopping for clothes and toddler gear. lol8 April, 2011 at 12:32 pm #654777
Oh, she is beautiful. And I think she’s going to be tall, too! Much love to Lovely from Down Under8 April, 2011 at 12:37 pm #654778
Congratulations!!! I’m sorry I never saw the original thread But I am so glad that you’ve gotten to meet her too. She is gorgeous It’s so nice when kids get adopted. Yes, definitely world’s longest “pregnancy”8 April, 2011 at 12:37 pm #654779

What a treasure! She is so beautiful and looks like she is a little pistol. You are going to have so much fun!8 April, 2011 at 4:00 pm #654782
What a cutie!!! Yes, those adoptive “Pregnancies” can drag on… It took about two years when I was adopting DG! Was ready to fly to pick her up at one point, when the process was shut down (international issues), and had to wait another 9 months to finally bring her home! We landed in the US on Christmas Eve! Congratulations again, KW, to you and the entire family! Enjoy!8 April, 2011 at 4:19 pm #654783
Congratulations! She looks really sweet, you have all been trully blessed, her included! Looking forward to hearing what you get up to as a family :).8 April, 2011 at 6:12 pm #654784
What a beautiful addition to your family as Lovely…enjoy your fun toddler time!
