Sad, but sweet...

Back in March, when Lilyann was in the hospital with pneumonia, her nurse informed us that she was also in the process of adopting from China. She had a log in date of 2/06, and they (CCAA, China center of adoption affairs) are now matching people with log in dates of 1/06, however it is taking forever, as the CCAA is only matching a few days at a time now...and the regular China adoption program has slowed drastically. Anyway, just the other day, that nurse contacted us, and gave us all of these things! These were all items she had purchased over time for her daughter to be. She informed us that they will no longer be adopting. She appeared sad. She did not say why they were not able to continue with their adoption plans. I feel for them, and also really wonder how they came so close to their daughter, and had to quit their pursuit. It was so kind of her to donate these items to us.

My heart breaks for that woman. We have a LID of June 2007. I hope I don't reach that inconsolable point that she did.
