Jordyn's Memories of Jailynn

This is a picture of Jordyn and Jailynn together at the orphanage. This is one of the first pictures that we saw of Jailynn and it was taken by a family on a heritage visit with their two daughters. One of their daughters is from the same orphanage as Jordyn which is how they met Jordyn. During the visit, Jordyn showed the family her photo album that we sent to her, to show off her new family. Jordyn was very happy to show off her book and that she had a family waiting for her in America. The family took pictures of Jordyn and Jailynn together and then looked for Jordyn's family once they were back in America. I am not sure how they found us but it was such a blessing and joy to get to see the pictures of Jordyn in the orphanage. We were still waiting to bring her home at that time. Now, I am good friends with this family and I have heard how the girls were like two peas in a pod at the orphanage. They played together and ran around like they owned the place.
Now, I want to share some of Jordyn's memories of Jailynn and their time together:
Jordyn told me that their favorite thing to do was to play outside in the mud when it was raining.
Their favorite game to play was Mommy and Daddy, and Baby. Jordyn was the Mommy and Jailynn was the baby.
Jordyn said that once she was sick with bumps ll over her and she was not allowed to be around the babies or Jailynn (sounds like she had the Chicken Pox). She had to stay in a room with an elderly person and Jailynn kept looking for her everywhere and was very upset that she could not find her. Jordyn said that finally when she was getting better Jailynn saw her and said "AHA!! There you are!" Then, the nurse let them play together.
I love to hear Jordyn tell me her stories and she has alot of stories to tell. I can just imagine the two girls together and the mischief they could get into. I imagine that Jailynn is a spicy girl alot like Jordyn and how fun it will be to have them together again, finally.

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!
