Two new pictures

It's been a long day. Mary is even too tired to blog. Maggie started to cry whenever Mary tried to set her down. We're very glad that she's bonding quickly. Tomorrow morning, we go to apply for her passport.

Time for bed here. Thank you for all of the great comments.

Just the shadow of a smile in the top picture and there she is asleep in new jammies that look like the ones you got Kyra for Christmas. Is there a baby bed in your room? I imagine there must be some sort of arrangement since this happens fairly often there, I'd guess. She IS even more beautiful than her other pictures showed.
Love, Mom

Forgot to ask. Has she said anything yet? Have they taught her any English?

Congratulations! She is beautiful! What a doll. Looks full of personality huh? Glad it's going well and we can't wait to see her. Take care and have a safe trip home!

She looks so content, those first day jitters are easing already. I brought the pictures over to Mom so she could cry again. Dad can barely look at the pictures without sniffling. I can't wait to see more pictures and of course to see her in person.

Mary -

I guess lifetime friendships run deep....when I saw your picture with Maggie I cried. I am so happy for you and yes, she likes you. (remember our conversation?)

You are now a family.

I am so happy for you three. May the rest of your trip be safe and may the new chapter in your life continue to unfold.

God Bless....

I'm jealous!
I wish I could have another one, if I have to find a woman who could stand me.
I'm sure the priority shift has already taken place; Maggie is now the most important thing in your lives. Everything else takes a back seat.
Get some rest and God bless the new Mickelson family.

What a beautiful child! What a beautiful day. Don't worry, Daddy, she's just probably not used to being around guys yet. Mary, the two of you look like you were meant to be together.

Hope it doesn't happen but if there is some inconsolable crying, it just means she is lonesome for where she has been cared for. We went through that with Davin when we moved from Brainerd to Medford. You were only abou 8 mo. old, Bryan and didn't really seem affected but Davin grieved for a couple of hours one day. He was just over 2 and I kept worrying that he was ill or hurt. I finally figured out that he was just realizing we weren't going back. It passed. Maybe he was realizing where we were going to stay =-). Anyway if she becomes sad, it will pass and all will be well again afterwards. Good luck. Can't wait for more pics!
Love, Mom

Like gas, all things must pass.

Wow! She's BEAUTIFUL! Mary, you look like you're in heaven! I'm sure the testers are wondering why I'm sitting in front of the computer crying. This is just so incredible. So happy for you and Bryan! Bryan, it won't be any time at all before she's climbing all over you. Tanya
