The other day I posted a picture on Facebook of my family having lunch out and someone commented that we needed a bigger table. LOL! My response was that there was always room for one more at the Rosencrants table. And I meant it. So we are not just bringing home our sweet Nora now, we are also bringing home a four year girl we will name Anna! We are so excited.
I have posted about Anna on this blog before, trying to find her family, here and here. God must have been laughing, knowing that I was blogging about my own daughter! She is a beauty and sweet as sugar, but she has a lot to overcome. First of all, She has not received the care she needs. Like Nora, she is about the size of a one year old. Owen will be huge compared to his older sisters. Much worse that that, though, she has hydrocephalus. This means that there is a build-up of fluid in her head. In the US it is treated early and kids usually have few effects. But Anna's orphanage didn't seek treatment for her and now her head is so big she cannot lift it. She has a constant headache. And she will die if she does not have surgery. She has been evaluated in her birth country but the doctors are afraid surgery there will kill her. So her only chance is to come here. We working as hard as we can to get her home, but so little of the adoption process is in our hands. Thankfully it is all in God's! Here is a link to see a picture of my two beautiful angels:
Now that Anna has a home, there are three children in her orphanage still available for adoption. They are:
