Because we are adding to the family, I will not be posting here anymore but have created a "family" blog, instead of just "Kelly's" blog.

Kelly is getting a new sisiter!!!
Introducing Drew Zhen Darling, born 12/07/09
We are so excited to be adopting again and hope to travel to get her this Christmas time. She is living in Dongguan City Welfare Institute in the province of Guangdong. It's close to Hong Kong in the South Eastern part of China. We started the paperwork in January of this year and were lucky enough to be matched end of June, much faster than when we paperchased for Kelly. Our crazy family of girls of almost all girls (poor Ron) will be adding one last female!
I am working on setting up a different "family" blog to follow Drew's journey home and just have the one blog for all of us. I'll post the link and site name when I get it started, but wanted to post our latest news!!

Wow, time has flown!
Thanksgiving and Christmas have come and gone and all is well here. Kelly continues to thrive and is a chatterbox now. We can't understand 95% of what she says (well, I can figure some of it out, but most people can't) but it's still great that she is talking up a storm. She is still doing Speech Therapy 5xs a week, still swimming and has Pre-school 2xs a week. She LOVES school and happily goes, and comes home painty, gluey, covered in her lunch and happy. All good.
Kelly did have a very short, easy (relatively) outpatient surgery last week to clip a skin "bridge" that went from the roof of her mouth to her cheek that was going to be in the way of chewing soon. The surgery went well and that should be it for surgeries (in her mouth...ear tubes need replacing)till she is around 5 yrs. old hopefully. Then another around 9, and again in her teens. All expected, and going as we assumed. She's healthy as a horse other than that, has had far fewer colds and "bugs" than Cory or Jamie ever did as a little one.
Life is good.
