Skip to My (Emmy) Lou My Darling

So MP (man person) refers to my Emme Li as EmmyLou. It's his pet name for her because when I told him her name he looked confused. Today I received a packet from my wonderful agency containing all of her original referral documents from China including a note I had not previously seen. It says, "....she can skip and hop and have simple conversation". I think hopping is a sign of brilliance. That's my girl!!!!! This is not a new photo but one of my favorites. It brings me much joy to se her smile with one of her favorite caregivers.

Hi, I stumbled onto your blog through Danielle. I felt an immediate connection to you, as we have a bio daughter named Emme...we are awaiting her Mei Mei. Our lid is 9/4/07. Congrats on your referral!

Lisa...Is "Lou" the universal middle name?? Many people call Lindsi...Lindsi Lou....I don't know where they got that.

Your Emme is so photogenic...get ready to take lots of pictures. I'm glad that you have this picture as a connection to her past.

Such wonderful news - simple things (skipping and hopping), but significant signs of life nonetheless. All the best.
