And here we are at 15

Not fair. It's just not fair. Yep, I'm having a pity party today. It's not fair that we don't have our little one. It's not fair that my parents will not be able to meet her. It's not fair that my oldest will be in college and his little sister will not be able to enjoy him or he her. It's not fair that another birthday, Labor day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas will go by and she won't be able to celebrate it with us. IT'S NOT FAIR!!!

There, I feel better. Sort of.

Here - go check out J&J!! They are in China right now with little Sofia. She is beautiful!!

Wordless Wednesday

New Look for an old chair

As you know we brought back my Grandmother's furniture from NY. The table and chairs are in great shape but the fabric on the chairs was beyond help. I went to the Cloth Barn and picked out some new material and big T helped me put it on the chairs. Check it out! I love the new look!!

Who doesn't love this store??!! I got the cutest little dress for Sofia while I was in NY. I could have spent a bunch of money there but my youngest was with me and he's not much for "girl" shopping. While I was surfing on the net today I came across a site that was having a contest for a Gymboree gift card for $250.00. Just click on this picture and follow the directions on how to put your name in the hat!! Good luck!

Out of Review

Oh wow!! I can't believe I completely forgot to say congrats to my fellow May LID'ers! We are out of review!!!! Yeah!!! That means that China has looked at our dossier and said yes, we can adopt from their country. Yesterday the referral calls were being made. China referred through November 21st. Over at RQ they are predicting that the December LID'ers will be the first group to hit the 2 year wait. I tend to agree with that. I also think that if we don't receive a SN referral we'll see our little girl by December of 2008. That will be a wait of 31 months - almost 3 years.

3 years....nope - not gonna accept that. I just can't see China letting that happen. Plus with people going over to SN or adopting from another country or just plain dropping out the time line should pick up a little.
