The Latest...

Shot an email to our agency this morning just out of curiosity, well, really out of desperation on when we might get news of our referral. This is our agency's response.

There is a possibility you will be matched with the next group with your LID of 5/17/06...it all just depends on how far into May the CCAA goes with the matches, and that, we never know until the match day information comes to us. (insert smiley face here) However, either way, the time should be arriving soon! (insert smiley face here) Hope this answers your question, please let me know if you need anything else!

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the latest from the greatest, CCAI. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that we will be in the next batch.

Happy Birthday Brea!

What a joy to see Brea turn one! First Sammi, now Brea. The theme was, of course, ladybugs. Mama Kim made several ladybug cakes. Very yummy and creative! Papa Todd taught Brea how to eat cake with her hands. Grandma Vicki and Grandpa John laid out a spread fit for a king's feast. Brea and Sammi hugged, kissed and played with bubbles. And gift bags and tissue paper were THE toys to play with. Thank you for having us, Van Clan. Enjoy the pictures, everyone!

Happy Mother's Day

A big shout-out to my mom, mother-in-law and all my good friends who became mothers through the miracle of adoption.

Van Visit

Hubs and I had a great visit with the Van Clan yesterday. Mom and daughter are doing fine. We saw Brea kiss her mommy, walk with assistance and munch on crackers. She is such a smiley baby! Kim, once again, enlightened and entertained us with funny stories and parenting/adoption tips as we snacked on yummy cupcakes. Thank you for the birthday goodies. We missed you, Todd!

My sis and bro-in-law are in town! I am spending every free minute I have with my sister. She is in town to present at the state TESOL conference in WPB. As promised she has brought down some of the items that she has made for Gigi. I'm so lucky to have a sister who doesn't mind sewing. My favorites include a giant diaper bag made with quilt squares, the "100" quilt and the reupholstered cushions for the mommy glider. Now I have three diaper bags--- two Curious Georges and an original from my sis!

Very Nice High Five!

What fun it was to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon with Wendy and Sammi! Both mother and daughter are doing well. We munched on burgers and fries at Doc's and strolled down Atlantic Avenue. Sammi, as usual, was a delight. I even acquired a new painting to add to my collection, a certain still life of turtles done in nontoxic acrylic from an up-and-coming young artiste. Life is good. Thank you Wendy, BorEd and Sammi for making my 41st birthday even more memorable.
