here's the scoop...

Here's what we know of our Maklayne Faith…

 (she can give a pout can't she! )
pronounced: m uh kl aa n e
usual spelling Maclaine,
but we have to be a bit different...
Our Kenzie is actually "Makenzie"
so we thought we could use another "Mak"

I like the nickname "Laynee"
but the rest of the family doesn't -
I'll be you after she has been home a few weeks
they will all be calling her Laynee with me!

(those eyes are just saying, "pick me up Momma")

Maklayne or Laynee,
is in Northern China,
in a foster home.

She is 4 years old,
and diagnosed with hydrocephalus.
She has a shunt, that seems to be working well.

There are many questions in her file...
they say that she has delayed hearing,
delayed speech,
can't feed herself,
and she can't walk.
There is no where in her file that states why she can't do
these things.

But her greatest need is that she needs to be home
with her family!
And we can't wait to bring her home!

We know that God has BIG plans for her!
I wish could show y'all the video our agency has of her -
her eyes just sparkle and she is walking assisted by a nanny,
and she is repeating what the nanny is saying...
I guess she heard her,
and I guess she can speak,
and she is trying to learn how to walk...

now if I could just get to my daughter all would be good!
We are hoping to have her home early fall!
(earlier would be great but we're trying to be realistic)

I have seen this little cutie on the list for the past year, but we were committed to another agency. So happy she has a family.
