I know it's quite long, but PLEASE take time to read this article on attachment in adoption. So many times we hear only about the happy stuff and rarely the flip side of adoption.
We are doing our very best to be prepared and open for whatever happens when we get Lily Kate. This article illustrates one mother's struggles to deal with problems that can arise in institutionalized children. So, if you would, please read and pray that our daughter is being cared for with love and attention. She is so much a part of us already - it hurts us to think of her lonely and afraid.
