an adoption shower

I was really blessed this weekend to have some friends throw me an adoption shower. My friend, Lee, was super excited about this and she went all out! Cake, decorations, favors... the whole shebang! Here are some pictures from the event.

The little kids really enjoyed helping open presents for a child their own age! The boy even liked the princess towel! :P

Alicia -aka Yaya- made matching mother/daughter scarves and hats! They are wonderful!

I asked Onni to be my daughter's Godmother. Her response was yes!

My friend Donna made the cake and everyone like it. She does great cakes!

I think everyone had a nice time and I was so pleased to have the support of my friends.

I'm Back


Sorry I disappeared for a while. Blogspot gave me trouble and I couldn't get on people's blogs for a while.

A lot has happened.

My little girl will be coming home at the end of this month!!!! The first week of Dec. at the latest! I will be in Florida for Thanksgiving.

She is so beautiful! She looks so smart. Her eyes are saying so much in the pictures I have seen.

She is right on target for weight and height for her age. She is delayed in her play skills, but likes age-appropriate TV shows, like Dora and Little Einsteins. She goes to preschool everyday and is learning communication skills.

I have completed most of my list. I met with the pediatrician and it went very well. We have a physical appointment set up for the middle of December. I found a nurse to attend school with her. I met with the school district and we are discussing appropriate placement. I have the phone company coming next week to install a line in her room. I am working on getting a night nurse. I have snow removal all arranged. I hope there isn't too much snow this winter!
