Amazing Race

I'm not sure what it is, but the tears have really been flowing lately.

Maybe it's because of one my closest adoption friends recently received their referral.

Maybe it's because we've been home almost 6 months.

Maybe it's because the kiddos have been sick.

But last night we watched Amazing Race. Yes, another season!! We really love watching it.

There we were, all cuddled in for the evening. Bethi and Amanu were having popcicles.

And then it happened! The tears started coming. Shawn was wondering what the heck i did!

I reminded him that last year while watching Amazing Race we waited for our referral. The show even had an Ethiopian brother/sister team on it.

We often made remarks about if our kiddos would grow up to look like the racers!

Bethi thought I was mad because I was crying. I tried to let her know they were happy tears, and sobs, by then. She then tried to act like she was crying too, because she was happy. (kids!)
I finally quit sobbing so as not to warp my daughter
So just a reminder to everyone waiting for their referrals: They do come, and the tears do too. Yep, they'll be around awhile!
