The Backpacks...

January 5, 2008 (his 2nd birthday!)

Bill asks if I want my "Charlie"! (Charles Henry~ yes we have a boy name ready to go.) I think Kate will be it, for us, though. I don't know if I'll have it in me..... Bill seems to think HE will!!!!

I’m really not sure about going back. But I have swayed from my thoughts in China the 2nd time that “this is it”. God still has some work to do on both of us, if it’s to be. We do have a name though~ Charles Henry~ Charlie. We’ve had that as a boy name since we were pregnant with Emily.

Yep, that's the sort of comment I remember your sweet mama making on the bus in Guangzhou! How's the paperwork coming? Any chance we'll meet up in China again?
