Meidyn's Journey Home

This is the journey, from beginning to end, of how we got our daughter home. We have not met her, she may not even be born... but she's already found a way into our hearts.

Lady bugs ARE good luck.

For those of you who don't know, the Chinese adoption groups have kind of claimed the ladybug as their unofficial good luck symbol. Yesterday, the day we sent our dossier to our agency, the very same day I was told our dossier would be off to China by Friday I saw a ladybug. think I'm reading into this too much but its true. I'll also have you know that it wasn't just coincidence, I wasn't walking through a garden searching for ladybugs, I wasn't even outside enjoying a sunny afternoon. I was minding my own business and I opened our door to let our dog out (at 8:30 at night) and if flew inside the house. More like tried to attack me to get in. Of course my immediate reaction was to swat this bug that flew at break neck speeds into my home but then I noticed IT WAS A LADYBUG. I immediately realized that this MUST be a sign of good luck. I also realized that under NO circumstances could anything happen to "Hope" ( yes I named her). Now I had to catch the critter without harming it and before my cats made short work of her. Well, 20 minutes later, armed with a sippy cup and papertowel we released "Hope", (Yes I really named her), into her natural habitat. YEAH......Leila we're coming soon! Hope told me so.
