Waiting For Eden

Waiting For Eden
by: Adrian

Wonderful Fantastic Incredible!!! One day on October 5, 2006 I got spectacular news. I was sitting at the dinner table when my mom told me I was getting a baby sister. Our baby is extra special because we are adopting her from China.

I jumped out of my chair feeling so extraordinary. I danced all around the kitchen to show how happy I was.

I could hardly wait to find out about China. We rented movies and books from the library.

When we go I get to go for 2 weeks. I want to see and learn all about the Great Wall of China. The Great Wall of China was built to keep people out.

I didn't think I would like Wonton soup at first but I was wrong. I tried it because I do not want to starve in China.

I learned that she will be from an orphanage. An orphanage is a place were babys live before they are adopted. I will try to bring money to the orphanage to help the babys and teachers.

My mom had to do all this stuff on the computer to send to China. The papers we send to China tell that we are safe and we won't hurt her.

Finally we got to send everything. Now we're officially on the waiting list. We have to wait for 2 years. A lot huh?

When she gets home I want to play, dance, and sing with her.
