I will never forget this day in 2008. I was working as a Teaching Asst. in a 2nd grade class. We had recently switched to the SN program of China. We were hoping for a match. On May 19th the teacher I was working with sent me to the copy room to copy a map of China. I remember looking at the map wondering where, in that vast counttry, would our daughter be from. I walked back to the room. Laurie said that there had been a phone message while I was gone. It was from A Helping Hand (our adoption agency) I called right back, got Dana our advocate, on the phone and heard the long awaited words "Kathie I think we have a little girl for you". I remember crying and saying something about the timing. You see, my good friend Christine had died on Friday May 16th following a courageous battle with breast cancer. She had so wanted me to get our match. Some how I knew it was all part of the plan. I ran home to pull up Dana's email and this is what I saw:
We accepted the referral and the rest is history as they say. What a day and what a joy we have in Sierra!
