Our Vietnamese sweeties!

This weekend was jam packed with excitement and I am so excited to be able to share this with you guys! About a year ago, we were contacted by a couple from Colorado who adopted a little girl from Vietnam. They had already gone over to Vietnam to get their little girl (Maria) and thought they had pictures and a video of Ema. We were so excited that someone could tell us a little about her and what she looked like. We had already seen pictures but it was nice that someone had actually seen her and that she was actually real. (Does that sound crazy) I guess after waiting 2 years for her you begin thinking she might not be real or something. Anyways, We kept in contact with them and once we got the word to go get Ema they were able to give us a lot of information on where to eat and things to do while in Vietnam. They helped us with knowing what to take and not to take as far as packing goes. Well, this weekend we were able to get Ema and Maria together. The last time they were together was in Vietnam at Ba Vi. It was wonderful to see them interact together and play together. Surprisingly, they had a lot of similar traits. The first thing I picked up on was their temper. Both girls really know how to have a tantrum. :) They are both TINY, have the same little scar on their left arm from some injection they receive in Vietnam, and both are very beautiful. I am so glad we were finally able to meet the Kremers and hopefully this will become a tradition to get the girls together. How often do you get the opportunity to see another child that was adopted from the same orphanage as your child. I think that Ema and Maria will really appreciate this more as they get older.

I think it is so wonderful that the girls will have each other as a connection to their "homeland"! Precious! Precious! Precious!

Maria has choosen some random moments to ask if we're on our way to see Ema. She really enjoyed playing with her and I can't help but wonder if she senses something different/special.
