1. Madison
Unfortunately, most of these are trendy and Michael and I are not into that many trendy names. That being said, these are names I like. This list should predict our future daughters name on it..Mind you, I wanted twins named Jackson and Madison for 10 years and thought I was the first one to come up with that. I was wrong..All of America had the same idea!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

First Friday

Did I tell you guys about the couple we met on the cruise that adopted 2 girls from China? they introduced to a couple who hold a support group in their home once a month, "First Friday"! I have been trying to work every Friday for extra money but I am off next Friday! Guess what day it is, Sept!. I think we can go. I am very excited as there will be people who are in various stages of the adoption process, those who havent started, those whose paperwork is almost through, those waiting for a referral and those waiting to leave for China!. I am very excited that we can go and meet these people! Yippee!

Whats going on?

Whats going on with the Christopher family? Well, I learned how to add links to this site. It was not as easy as I expected but I figured it out.

My coworkers love me. When they assigned patients Wednesday night,they gave me a lovely 17yo post op patient. The reason they gave me this patient was that his parents recently got back from China after adopting baby Gracie. How sweet was she! Unfortunately, by the time I got back from my meeting, the patient had fallen asleep and I was unable to talk with them. I was quite disapointed..I am sure another one of those moments will come again.

We are heading to Florida for a few days. We have started cleaning and organizing the house, a little bit. Michael finished painting the bathroom upstairs and it just needs some touch ups. Some friends have given me ideas to help with that, but it is a bit overwhelming. We have gotten a fire extinguisher. We should have one anyway, but we are sure the homestudy people will want to see it. Thats about it.
I have totally enjoyed answering questions..I told someone we were adopting from China and there answer was 'Is that legal'? That was kind of funny. I am sure we will have more questions like that but that was great. More details to come as we set our orientation date and wait to get approved.. Thanks for all the kind emails.

its a God thing

Okay, another sign God is totally in this process. We went to a new doctor yesterday..Wonderful Christian lady who, get this, is in the process of adopting. She has 3 kids but is adopting 2 older ones this year and soon as she is matched..Anway, because of her history, she knew what labs we would need, what info the agency would need.

How cool is that?
