So much to say, so much to say...

Let's see so much has been happening lately. I feel like I am back on the boards visiting my few favorite blogs. We applied for yet another SN child, because the first three weren't enough. A boy. Darling C. got braces. I, too, got braces. I have some lovely eye disorder that will never be written on a HS. It really isn't a big deal, nothing that therapy and glasses won't cure. Slow my roll...did I mention boy??? Well, yes we requested a girl, officially. Yet our agency posted this list of SN kiddos, and there was the most beautiful boy I have ever seen. Catch is we are family #2. The number ones have his file now and if they say no way, Jose, we are next in line. Boy? BOY? B-O-Y? OMG, I have more fri@@in' pink stuff, either left over or new than I know what to do with. Can you say ebay and shopping spree? Well, honestly chances are slim at best. Family #1 applied for him. They are now reviewing. He will go to the family that is meant to be. Them? Us? Some dark horse? So we wait some more. I am at peace with this whole deal SN, the wait, the whole process. Life is good. I am glad to be here, and our child will be here someday. You caught me at a post chocolate, post Merlot moment. Peace!

Happy Anniversary times TWO....
The 17th of January was our 23 month anniversary for our LID. Then, the 18th of January was our 16th wedding anniversary. The first anniversary slipped by on my radar, as I try not to focus too much energy on the time waiting. The wedding anniversary was a divine meal out with my dear hubby. Of course, our quiet meal brought good conversation. Thoughts of when our daughter will join us certainly did fill a few moments of conversation, however, we once again affirmed our commitment to our daughter and to this process.
I am at peace with everything. Peace is a good place to be. I do check RQ hourly waiting to see any movement of any news/rumors. I am excited, for one of my fellow bloggers is next! yipee! But the next referral batch also gives me a glimpse of when the window might be for our referral. As we get closer that window will start to close. I would anticipate an April (total long shot) to a December (probably on the outer realm) window for a referral.
My heart goes out to all of you waiting. The not knowing seems to be the hardest. I feel for those beyond a February 28, 2006 referral. That wait will grow exponentially. What I keep holding onto is that these are smaller months (December is almost over, January and February are smaller). The CCAA should finish February 2006 in 2009.
So happy anniversary to me. Sixteen years...holy crap, I am old!
Peace to all.....

Friday and a Make-Over

Thought I would lend a new look to the blog. Blogger makes it so easy, even if you aren't too techie.....
The photograph is from our trip last year to the British Virgin Islands. We are hoping to go again, especially with this ever increasing wait. Those are the children of our friends and their Cat boat in the distance. It was the most amazing vacation ever and I hope to repeat it!

So I am back on track.....

Alright after a bit of a break, I think I am back on track. A few postings on the RQ forum, I am feeling better and more thoughtful about the adoption process. Yes, I am anxious to have our daughter join us, but truly she is a gift from China. And quite honestly, China will decide when we she will join our family officially. Yes, I am still impatient. But we are lucky to have her, and I will wait for her until she comes!
Having said all that, I have returned to reading some of my select few fellow bloggies. I got this from Nina. Thanks Nina! you are right. It is on the money!
