Here's how it is.....


We spoke w/our agency tonight and they confirmed my worst fears..........the wait is going to be VERY long. Our anticipated date of referral is to be April of 2009. (Remember our LID.....6/2/2006) I am so bummed out, I've seen all the rumors but just didn't want to come to reality with it until now. When our agency says something it's usually pretty accurate-unfortunately.
So with that being said.....many tears later I'm here to tell you that we will wait out this wait until we get out daughter - No matter how long it is! and NO we are not going to change countries. Our daughter is in China and we will wait. What's that saying....Good things come to all that wait??? Yep...We're waiting!
I keep trying to get my husband to go out and buy me cake....I need cake! Maybe some wine too (a bottle or 3)!

Bloggy clean up

Today I spent a little time checking out all of my links and wow...there were quite a few blogs that haven't had anything posted on in months. I have removed all of the broken links and deleted the blogs that haven't had any recent postings. If I deleted yours by mistake PLEASE let me know and I will put the link back up.

Gifts from the Orient




Well....sort of
Today my father-in-law had an appointment to discuss some granite countertops and long story short....the lady of the house was from China and she sent this little tidbit with him so of course he brought it over for us to enjoy. It is a small pineapple cake from China and we shared it between 4 of us just to have a taste. It was good, Gordon describes it as a kind-of fig newton cookie. Anyway we enjoyed it maybe because of the flavor or maybe because it came from China and we cherrish any part of that country we can get right now.

Thank you to the Moon Family for sharing this with us, you don't know how much this little cake ment to us.

A very special present


Today I came home to find this
very special gift from my cousin Emily, her husband Bob and their 2 girls...Sophie & Stella. Em MADE this blanket for baby Mia...Em is so talented (I think Gram tought her how to do this) The girls must have searched long and hard to find just the perfect fabric for Mia's quilt and what a good job they did & they even made a wish too. There will be a special place in the quilt just for them. I can't wait to bring Mia home so she can meet all of her new family.

Need travel help?

A friend of mine has a travel site you should check out. This would not be ideal for our international travel during adoption but any other time this would be a great site to use. I have also placed the link in the side bar of this webpage for future use. I am now on the mailing list for those weekend get-away rates.
