An Exciting Day Turned Upside Down
Monday morning, June 17th- it was the day that my new daughter, and my kid’s new sister was going to arrive! Yes, indeed- Annika was coming! Until something happened….
“Come on! We have to practice how we’re going to greet Annika when mommy picks her up from the orphanage!” Felicity said.
“Yes, we must rehearse!” Rebecca agreed.
They had just finished *rehearsing* when I (mommy) came in with some sad news.
“Girls, I’m afraid Annika won’t be arriving today.” I said sadly.
“Is everything alright?”
Questions spinned in the air.
“Annika got a cold so she won’t be able to come until next Monday. I know you’re disappointed, but in the meantime maybe we could make something for her. And we should pray that she will heal quickly, too.” I said.
“Yes, we can do that! Let’s make her a ‘Welcome To Your New Home’ card!” Caroline suggested and everyone agreed.
Saige signed last and the card was finished.
Here’s the front-
And the inside which reads:
“Welcome Home, Annika! WE LOVE YOU!
Love, Mommy and your brothers and sisters”
And on the left is all of their signatures.
“There, now it’s ready to be handed to Annika in just one week!” Saige said.
What do you do to welcome your new dolls?
