Turkey Day is done!

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I'm just glad ours is over! We made it through quite a few awkward conversations (not even adoption related ones) relatively unscathed, and also made it home before bedtime. success! I'm getting pretty excited for Christmas, but Craig won't let me put the tree up yet. I usually have most of my shopping done by this time of year, but am running a behind this season. And I'm not brave/crazy enough to go Black Friday shopping, so it'll have to wait a little longer. :o)

maybe not so tech-savvy!

Ok, so we're not as good as we thought at the blogging thing, lol. Our new blog had some serious issues. Mallory (my friend in VA) had to fix the photo album part for us because none of the captions lined up with the pics and I couldn't get it to work. So, apparently I am still technologically impaired, and no progress has been made. I was so excited too! oh well. It's fixed, so I guess it doesn't matter :o) Hooray for friends!

I'm still ready!

Well, I'm definitely still ready for a baby. Work is not making it easier - tis the season for sick babies to be coming in to the hospital, and for me to be helping them breathe easier. And they are oh-so-sweet when they are sleeping......... I have to battle the inner demons that want me to stuff that baby under my scrubs and zoom on out of the hospital. The fact that I would be fired and lose my license usually stops me. :o) The occasional urge to steal babies aside, I think I'm getting a tiny bit better at the waiting thing. I know I'm a little tired of saying "still waiting" when people ask, but you know, at least we're still in the process. I'm enjoying Gabe while he's still the only child I need to focus on, and I hope he benefits from it. I'm pretty sure he will, cause what could be greater than time with me? :o)

We are so tech-savvy!

We just made an entire blog that's basically a modified version of our adoptive profile. Prospective birthparents can go there and learn all about us. I'm so proud! I never thought I would be able to create something like that (including pictures)! It's called

I feel like doing a very dorky dance right now, but I think I'll try to hold it in. :o)

Chip In!

Check it out - it's a fundraising site. Even if you can only contribute a dollar, it goes straight to us to help with our adoption. How awesome is that?

Chip In!

mixed feelings?

I think I'm feeling a little down today. Every baby I see makes my heart hurt. It makes me think about trying to get pregnant again, even though I know of the heartbreak that can bring. But, adoption is what I believe God has asked us to do, and it's on his timeline. I'm just aching to hold our baby, wherever and whenever they are. Here's where the mixed feelings come in - I know others feel sad around this time of year because of the holidays, but I'm actually looking forward to them. I love spending these special times with the family I have. It may be easier on me because we already have Gabe to share these moments with, but I'm still waiting for our family to be complete. I know that little person is coming, and I just can't wait! I'm ready!
