I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. No, it's not our child from China (I wish), it's our new doggie. We named her Liberty Belle (the Belle part is named for her doggie cousin) and we call her Libby. She already knows her name and is working her way into our hearts and home. She's about three years old and came to us from the local pound. There are so many pets there who need loving homes.
She's such a sweetie and everyone she meets falls in love with her. She has a couple of medical issues we are treating. Please say a prayer she can beat these and grow strong and healthy. Libby has bonded to me so strongly she practically panics if I leave her sight. So we continue to work on her confidence that Mommy won't leave her. I do wonder if God is preparing us for adopting a child who's afraid of being abandoned.
