Hey, why China?
Exactly how expensive is it?
Oh, do you have apicture of your baby yet?
DO you get to pick her out?
Do you have to call her by her Chinese name?
American babies are good too.
These are just a few of the comments I have heard. Most people are interested in the whole process and I enjoy telling them.
I do agree with everyoneho has been talking about this week. Referral times are fun. There is a lot to keep you busy during this wait. Celebrating your LID each month, enjoying the referrals and GOTCHA days of our friends, the different projects our yahoo groups are doing and meeting new friends.
THis is definitely an experience I would not have guessed we would be in 5 years ago. I know our lives will change completely the day we see our daughters picture. I love to imagine that day and how we will celebrate but I also think of ways to get myself out of the sad times, which I am sure will pass by.
Michael and I were able to spend a lot of time during the paperchase together..Doing the autobiography was interesting and I think we both learned a lot about each other. Friends.. We needed friends, not that we were friendless. But, we have met some incredible friends that we now share a common bond with forever..Its so neat! The whole idea just makes me smile..The quilt thing is going well. I am in the middle of a swap and have gotten some squares from different states.. I love getting mail!
Our first garage sale is in a few weeks and its turned into a neighborhood sale. I have met a new friend and walking buddy because of this.
Michael and I have been attending a neat church that we learned about from our adoption support group.
Great things are happening to the Christophers. Sure, there are going to be some trying times. we are blessed beyond measure and this great adventure is going to better than we could have imagined!!!
THanks for your prayers and support!!!!
