What a great start to the week...

My friend and co-worker, Janet, gave us a Chinese New Year's gift today! What an awesome surprise and I was so touched that she would think of us.

She gave us a book for Lauren's collection (The Grouchy Ladybug), some pretty ladybug paper, and a custom printed card.


Janet, it was SO sweet of you to think of us...thank you! It's things like this that make the adoption seem "real" for me. When you're having a biological child, you KNOW it's real all along the way and get to hear the baby's heartbeat and see him/her on the ultrasound monitor. With the adoption process, we wait and wait with no confirmation (except a pile of government forms), until the end when we get our referral. Until then, it's faith and hope that get us through, along with a few days like today when it feels a little more "real".

What a sweet thing for her to do! It means so much when people acknowledge the adoption and that you're 'paper pregnant!' You're getting there friend...closer and closer every day!
