Happy Sister's Day


"A sister is God's way of proving He doesn't want us to walk alone." --Unknown
Not only is today Friendship Day but it is also Sister's Day--which seems quite fitting. Although Lindy doesn't quite comprehend it, we tell her she is going to one day have a little sister or mei mei. Occasionally she even talks about her mei mei in China.
As "older" parents we know we won't be around for our girls as long as we might like to be. We're not trying to sound morbid, it is just a plain fact. We know there is often a very special bond between sisters. Our prayer is that Lindy and our next daughter will always share a close relationship together and never feel alone.
So if you have a sister, today would be a great day to tell her just how much she means to you.

That is a great thought! Even when our parents aren't necessarily "older" we will most likely have our siblings around longer than our parents. My brothers are getting physically farther apart and, being the only sister, it mainly falls to me to make sure we talk often and stay close!

We'll keep praying that Lindy will be blessed with her special mei mei.

This is a great post. We are in the same boat as you guys. I know we won't be around since we are "older" parents too and this is why I am so glad Mallory will have a sister. It's a comforting thought knowing they will have their sister to lean on. Love your logo on this post.;)

Our daughters are from Yueyang City. We stayed in Changsha while getting them.

We just met a family in our city who's daughter is from Changsha. She doesn't blog right now, but our playgroup may get her interested.

A sister is very important, we agree. You are very blessed to be able to grow your family. Our new daughter will have a sister about 26 years older. Alyzabeth An will be very close to her even though the age difference is huge (she is named guardian too). Wish we were not so old to be able to get a sister for Alyzabeth but such are the rules.
Congratulations on your LID. We will enjoy reading about your progress.
