We have decided and it will be a shock to most

Hi everyone,
I know yesterday we made it sound like we had our mind made up and even as early as this morning we thought we did. We went to the baby house today to bond with the youngest little girl. We played with her for a good 2 hours and we both left the place feeling very unsure about our decision. We went back to the apartment and called home. After talking to my parents and doing a lot of talking to each other, we decided we had to really rethink things. Brian and I asked ourselves what we seen when we closed our eyes. When we both opened them we said we see a little girl running to the pool with Caden or running around the yard playing with Caden. Not me changing diapers and tending to a baby while Caden plays by himself. If we would really be honest with ourselves the reason we started this adoption was so Caden had someone closer to his age that he could play with and be close to when he got older. If we brought home a baby he wouldn’t be able to play with her for a long while and there would be a huge age gap. With all that being said we chose to go with the 2 ½ year old. When they brought the 2 girls out to us the oldest one just walked in and had the biggest smile on her face, she melted our hearts. We should have listened to our hearts right then and there. We came here thinking we wanted the youngest one we could get, but really the more we talked about it the more we realize with our life style and Caden she will be the best choose for us. Her given name here is Sabina. We have not decided to weather or not to keep that yet. The name fits her but still unsure. When you all get to meet her, she will melt your heart like she did ours.

We are so happy for you. Wow! What a hard choice. I hope you both sleep better tonight. This reminds me of the phrase you can't save the world, no matter how hard you try. I'm guessing no one donated the extra money yet so you could adopt both girls. All you need is one very affluent donor--two donors wouldn't be bad either! Looking forward to more updates. How many more times will you see Sabina at the baby home while you are there? How long were you there today? Tell us what your doing when you're not at the baby home. Have you found any good Kaz food?
Love you both lots,
Chris, Ron & boys
