I took Thursday off work and traveled to celebrate my beautiful daughter's birthday.We shopped, we dined out, and I got to meet some of her college friends. The first picture is her and her"baby" Macee. (we are puppy sitting,since she's so busy) The next 2 pics are Sophie and Macee in one of their quiet moments. Usually they are playing, fighting, or us not knowing which they are doing.
Then of course...You have to have cake!!!! You can't tell by the pic but it has icing snowflakes,with white tiny sprinkles. She was definetly a winter baby.

1.The fact that there are 143 million children without a parent to kiss them goodnight has made you lose sleep.

2.You realize DNA has nothing to do with love and family.

3.You can't watch Adoption Stories on TLC without sobbing.

4.The fact that if 7% of Christians adopted 1 child,there would be no orphans in the world,is convicting to you.

5.You spend free time surfing blogs about families who have experienced the blessing of adoption.

6. It drives you crazy when people ask you about adopted child's "real" parents.

7.You have ever been "pregnant" with your adoptive child longer than it takes an elephant to give birth.(2 years!)

8.You had no idea how you would afford to adopt but stepped out in faith anyway knowing where God calls you He will provide.

9. You have ever taken an airplane ride half way around the world with a child you just met.

10. You believe God's heart is for adoption.

11. You realize that welcoming a child into your heart and family is one of the most important legacy's you could ever leave on this earth.

12. You know what the word Dossier means and you can actually pronounce it!

13. You have welcomed a social worker into the most private parts of your life.

14. You shudder when people say your child is so lucky that you adopted them, knowing full well you are the blessed one to have them in your life.

Jeopardy Theme Song

Alot of us, I'm sure, have been hearing this tune in our head lately.
Even my dentist was humming this yesterday afternoon! She says she'll quit asking if we have a referral, yet. Her assistant on the other hand, said she won't! They said after we get our referral, they expect me to run in and let them know. (no appointment needed!) Thanks!
When we get our kiddos,she wants me to bring them in and let them roam. The toychest at the dentist is going to be one of their favorite things. So SHE says!! We'll see!
No news lately of referrals with our agency. Whadda ya think? Anyone ready??

Ok, I finally have pictures!!! The picture of Shawn and I could not be made any smaller...by ME anyway!! Guess I have to learn more!! Guess I really need to get rid of red eye next time!!

This is our Sophie! She is so sweet. She's 4 years old. She was part of the marriage proposal. Shawn had a ribbon with my engagement ring tied to it. 4 years ago WOW! Sophie has a niece named Macee, that has been staying with her. She looks exactly the same only only alot smaller.....
Since I'm practicing pictures, I'll leave it as is for now!!!
