I have gotten so used to posting these milestones but I have to say that this Lidversary is the best one yet! Life is grand :) I still can't seem to get anything done though. I have a major concentration problem these days :) I have been trying to figure out what Abby's Chinese name Lin Ping An means. I know that Lin is her surname and more then likely the name of the director of Abby's SWI. I have been searching the Internet and have seen beautiful jade, Forrest and woods all as possible meanings for Lin. Ping, I have found in my searching is commonly used for females. Evidently it is considered feminine but the only meaning I have found is level? An has several different meanings such as peaceful, quiet, still, to pacify, rest, calm, and tranquil. I know I may well be totally off base with these meanings too. In my reading it seems like it is really important to actually see the Chinese characters and hear their tones when translating a Chinese name. We have a family friend who is Chinese but she is actually in China right now.
Okay I totally wasn't done with this post and I thought I had saved it as a draft. I was going to add that I received Abby's translated medical report today. She looks perfect! . It says that she is quiet, fond of listening to music, fond of playing with toys that make music, likes to watch TV, has a ready smile, is quick in reaction and is obstinate sometimes. It also says that she is closest to her caretaker, Her favorite toy is a wooden horse and her favorite activity is being held by her caretaker while she plays :)
I finally return to real life again. I have to work tomorrow and Friday. I also wanted again just to thank you all for your comments, well wishes and e mails :) I have tried to respond back but I am sure that in all of the excitement I probably missed somebody. Truly though, Thank you from the bottom of my heart:) Your well wishes mean the world to me and I am saving them all for Abby :) * I will probably keep this song playing through the weekend :) Hope I don't irritate anyone away *
