Good Morning Everyone...

Good Morning! I'm trying to keep up with early bird Steffie B. I'm going to brew some coffee and enjoy a little time catching up on some blogs. Zach just took off to do some early morning water skiing and everyone else is asleep. Leave me a comment and I'll drop by and say hello!
I thought we'd enjoy a little James Taylor this morning.

My Boys Are Home From Camp...

My two oldest sons came home today from Camp Michawana. They can't stop talking about all of the fun that they had and the awards that they won for learning their Bible verses and lessons and sporting activities. Thank you Lord for touching my son's hearts over these past two weeks and grooming them into the men you want them to be.

This was one of the parting songs at camp.

One Wish...

This picture is called One Wish. I'm hearing rumors about referrals and reports that TA's are arriving. People's wishes are coming true. All of us here share the same wish, for our daughters to come to us quickly. My girl is on my mind today more than usual. I love you Sophia Jane, wherever you are...your Momma loves you and I will come for you.

2 Posts Today...Help Wanted...

I would like to have 4 new headers designed. I am not interested in a blog make-over, I get too restless and need change too much. I would like 4 custom headers done that I can change at will. I am ready and willing to compensate. If anyone is up to it, please let me know!

Something Beautiful...

I'm so glad I found you all. If no one has told you today, you are beautiful! Now crank up this song and dance around your livingroom-that's what I'm doing!!

Do You Want To Be A Secret Buddy???

I have had several people mention to me that they would like to be a secret buddy. Well, if you are interested, please e-mail me at DO NOT LEAVE A COMMENT AND GIVE YOURSELF AWAY! Just send me an e-mail and let me know what country you are adopting from and any type of LID information or other type of timeline data that I can use to match you with someone who is compatable and will be able to participate for approximately the same amount of time as you. I know that I have someone interested who is adopting from Vietnam, so please know that you do not have to be China only in order to be matched.
If there is enough interest, I will forward you a brief questionnaire that I will later forward on to your Secret Buddy so that they will have an idea of your likes and interests and your address so they can mail out your packages.
I am very fortunate to have an outstanding secret buddy. I really look forward to her packages each month. I also get a lot out of sending things to the family who I have been matched with. It's a great experience.

8 people have joined in so far!

Quote of the week...

Thank You All for A Wonderful Baby Shower!

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported Elizabeth's Baby Shower! It was unbelievable. What was intended to be a casual weekend shower turned into a continuous weekend long live-chat with 324 comments and 30 RSVP's. I can't remember the last time that I laughed so much. You are an amazing group of women.
I know that we had a lot of ladies who were away for the weekend. If you would like to RSVP for the shower, just send me an e-mail at, or leave a comment with your e-mail address and I will forward her address and wish list to you.
Have a wonderful week!
