Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group! It's been pretty warm up here in Michigan. The lake is thawing and we're supposed to have a lot of rain today. I'm planning on getting together Sophia's package for us to send to her orphanage this weekend. I am also nesting big time. I have been sending bags to Goodwill and Spring Cleaning. It's really sinking in that my girl is coming.
Amy and Michael are leaving for China to bring home LynnMarie this week. You are going to want to follow their journey and give them all of the support you can. Their adoption blog is 'When Love Takes You In'.
Robin is still in China bringing home Mia Hope and it seems like things are really going well. Mia Hope was grieving quite a bit for the first couple of days which is to be expected, but she has been smiling and opening up to her new family more and more each day.
Thank you so much for supporting the auction to raise funds for Sophia Jane. I am receiving some amazing donations. Quite a few items are going to come off this week though, so if you have anything hiding in a closet that you would like to donate, please let me know. Also, if you would like to place the sidebar graphic on your blog, that would be wonderful too!
**THE SAT CHAT HAS NOW CLOSED, HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

On behalf of my family and myself, I want to say THANK YOU. Thank you to everyone who has left a kind word from the heart congratulating us on the newest member of our family. Thank you to everyone who has donated to our fundraiser. Thank you to everyone who is making things and donating things to our auction for Sophia. Thank you to everyone who sent cards and left voicemails. Thank you to the ladies who are planning showers.
Thank you to my Dad who retired a little early and is coming here to help cover our bills while I am on FMLA leave from work with Sophia.
I am truly just overwhelmed by your kindness. When we accepted Sophia's referral, our agency gave us three days to pay $1050.00, we didn't have it right on hand. You all came forward and we had the money on time. I cannot thank you enough. I cried at my mailbox yesterday when I saw Sophia's shower invitation. This is such an emotional time for me and I just want you all to know that I really appreciate your efforts and your friendships and I am taking to heart everything.

I snatched this photo from Kelly's blog. But here we are....Kelly, Nancy, Steffie and me. We all had dinner together over a year ago. None of us had our babes at that time, but now we are all finally matched. Kelly's little Ella is home. Steffie, Nancy and I have been matched over the past two months.
Nancy actually was just matched last week! Her blog is 'Asennd', it's private. She has waited such a long time. I'm so happy for you girl!
