Anna Leisa

I so love connecting with you this way! My heart sings with writing to you and imagining you hear my words in your heart..
It is thundering now and always this will connect me to you. In that place where thunder rocks you in the chest with deep reverberations; a chesty song that roars with life.
I have your name now.... Anna Leisa Lei Jin Fu Sonnichsen. We will call you "Leisa" with the memory of thunder in your world.
I love you dear ... and in these days I also miss you!

Meeting You!

Dr. Aung, our local traditional Chinese doctor who also practices western medicine met you( He was so happy to see your face and to learn your very very good name. He wants to meet with you some day and said he wants to tell you how "interesting you are". He is such a kind and compassionate man and in his Buddhist teachings understood you and I to be very good together. We will go and see him one day and you will see he is very very wise. He said your name is good: Lei is 'thunder' and gives you strength, Jin is 'scholastic and earthly , and Fu is 'good fortune'. He says it means you will have hardship but that you will come up from that. He meditated on us that night and I know a meeting in the spirit occurred. Soon I will know your western name.

Little tremblings....

I think honey our little house shook yesterday... There was so much energy in our little home that the walls jiggled and the roof popped off a couple of times. I think there was so much happening right here that you probably felt it there? A little tremble of love. We had so many visitors and calls and emails and well wishes. Everyone thought you were beautiful, well cared for and healthy....wise and in general just perfect. We all welcome you.
I am so happy. Carrying your picture with me everywhere....

Referral Day!!!!

We are all soooo excited today my love!! You are now in all of my pores! We are bonded now and all it takes is a few weeks and I'll be there to take your hand.

You have a secret on your lips in the baby bald picture. One I will playfully coax our of you daily. It is your little smile that the other two photos don't show. You are a little shy and timid I think. But you will know me and trust me soon and we'll walk together..... Gently at first and then surely.

Gramma cried when she saw you and it is Granpa's birthday and he could not get a better present.

I sit now at Alberta Children's services waiting for your file and writing to you of my love.

You are perfect!
