Heart Prints

With just one week to go, the Tongginator's heart chain is down to single digits. We've saved each heart the Tongginator removed because she wrote a message to her future little sister on each day's heart. We began doing this every morning, before breakfast, the day after we received our travel approval.

I thought y'all might appreciate reading the Tongginator's thoughts to her mei mei... some are sweet, some funny, many redundant. But all are heartfelt.

May 12, 2011 ... My sister is the best!

May 13, 2011 ... My sister is the cutest thing ever!

May 14, 2011 ... She's a good little one!

May 15, 2011 ... I want to play with her as soon as we get home.

May 16, 2011 ... I want to play kitchen with her.

May 17, 2011 ... My sister is just the right girl.

May 18, 2011 ... My sister is going to be the best sister of all.

May 26, 2011 ... I need my Mei Mei now!

May 27, 2011 ... Why does God want Mei Mei to be so cute?

May 28, 2011 ... If I don't meet my sister now, I might stomp my feet!

May 30, 2011 ... Which part of China is my Mei Mei living in now?

Oh my word. So cute! And so dramatic! I think this is a great idea while waiting. I'm guessing LT is about out of her skin with excitement as the days wind down to departure date :)

Aus said...

I may stomp my feet too!

And this idea is brilliant - wish we'd have thought of it!!

What a cool life memory -

and I might stomp my feet soon too!

hugs - aus and co.

What a brilliant idea. We enjoyed reading your blog. We are a young couple from India doing domestic adoption. Do check out our adoption blog http://mypathtoadoption.blogspot.com/

How can it get any sweeter or real than that? She will do fine and be a wonderful big sister. Siblings caring for each other is one of the most beautiful sights ever.

Sharie said...

Adorable. What a sweet idea. I'm sure Mei Mei will love reading those when she is older.

Annie said...

Oh TM, what a wonderful idea and keepsake for your newest little one!!! I cannot believe you only have one more week to wait to hold your precious new ba by girl! I will be following along! I am really busy with my new site so I don't always comment, but I read and I am just so happy for you all!

I am catching up on all your posts, your second journey of a lifetime. And I had to stop here. To comment. Wonderful heart chain. You have a very special, bright, loving child.
Now, back to catching up!
