Secret Buddy Revealed

I've been pretty bad in the last few months regarding my secret buddy. Every month she has had a package for us and more importantly for the baby. But I haven't posted what she got us on the blog. I just haven't been able to get my act together. We always opened our packages at a time when we were feeling low because of the time lines and it always lifted our spirits. This month is the last month for this run and our secret buddy has been revealed, Jean!

Jean and her family are in China right now as she accepted a referral for a special needs child. I will be following her journey until she gets home.

Jean, thank you very much for everything. Like I said, with this very long wait ahead of us, it's been hard to stay positive but your thoughtfulness and caring words have made this journey easier for us. We are very honoured that you have been a part of our lives this past year. I hope we will have the opportunity to get to know each other in the future, once you're home with Elizabeth.

Secret Pals have a great knack for keeping your spirits up when they feel so low. I hope you're feeling better soon.

PS- Should I be expecting an e-mail from you about...the new year? :-)

Totally off topic but I met your cousin. She is taking her ECE and is working at Olivia's daycare. She was talking to me the other day about how her husbands cousin was going through the wait right now and how its taken so long.... I said what are their names, hoping you were in cyberspace adoption world. Lo and behold - I KNEW YOU!

We sure are a small tight community.

Secret Pals ROCK!!! I sometime think that it is the only way to get through this whole wait!! I LOVE to shop and give gifts. The ones we receive in return are always so thoughtful and beautiful. Our exchange ends in March and I don't know what I will do!!!!!!!

yes.....I promise you.....it WILL be worth it! ;) I miss hearing from you,
but I understand that people are busy and sometimes the blogs are just not a
high priority. I go in and out of phases with it.
Hope you have a good weekend!
