Goodbye 2010.........Hello Future!
This year has brought a lot of good things( my nieces
birth, camping trips, family celebrations ~ Some sad things ( a few deaths, a
health scare) but the greatest thing was receiving our referral!! The last 7
months have been a roller coaster experience but this part of the ride is almost over and with the start of the New Year,a whole new ride is about to begin~~~ one I can't wait for!
As Always Be Good & Be Safe
December has been a busy month. It started off with a lovely surprise. About once a month I get together with a bunch of ladies from an adoption group I joined a few years back. We go out to get a bite to eat & chat. These ladies have been a god sent to me thru this roller coaster of a ride and on the first Saturday of this month during our monthly get together showered me with gifts for Aislinn. I can not put onto words how honored I am that these women are my friends.
We painted Aislinn room (ok I did, who are we kidding, Stew-Be was away hunting while I spent the weekend painting and Yes Bambi is safe for another year)Chair rail is up, dresser is painted and clothes are being hung up. Its really being to look like a little girls room.
This past Sunday night we had my family (same crowd from Thanksgiving) over to celebrate my dad's brothers Birthday.My dad & Uncle Donald shared a birthday (December 14th) Dad would of been 77 & Uncle Donald was 80.
On Monday night Saorla had her first orchestra & on the same night my two rugrats had their choir concert. So I went to one high school, ran into my seat (her mom was holding it for me) got to see Saorla perform, bolted out as soon as she was done & drove to the kids high school (two towns over) & made it into my seat just as the light went down! As I was sitting in the auditorium listening to the hiliday music I could help but think of Aislinn. I wonder if she will be interested in any music, sports,or theater? I had really thought she would of been home by now but you can never count on the red tape.
Travel looks like February for us. we FedEx our visa applications out today and our Article 5 (DS230) will deliver it to the CCAA on December 30. Next Step Travel Approval!!!! There is a light at the end of this tunnel.... I just hope it hasn't burned out & due to budget cut isn't being replaced! LOL
Tomorrow night its cookie night with the rugrats, then on Friday it Christmas eve services with them then off to a family gathering with the rest of my family.
From us to you, May you all have a Very Merry Christmas!
As Always Be Good & Be Safe
It was the night before Thanksgiving and all thru the house not a creature was stirring... Not even Andrew or Misty! A million things were needed to be done for I was hosting the Holiday again this year.Same crowd as last year joined us for a day of laughs Love & plenty of food.
On Friday Stew-Be & I went upstate to see his parents. We spent a good weekend again with a lot of laughs, plenty of love & too much food. (Back to WW for me)
Only things missing this Holiday was hearing where we are in the paperwork process. The US government has our 1-800 and we are waiting for its approval so we can go onto out next step. Travel is really looking like February.
As Always Be Good & Be safe
