Today marks our 3 year wait for our imaginary baby. I've taken to referring to our adoption in this way because there is just no end in sight. If it weren't for all the bills we've paid to our social worker, adoption agency, doctors, lawyers, etc I wouldn't believe it was happening.
I haven't been posting much lately. It's not that we haven't had things going on, we've been pretty busy. We finally managed to meeting our neighbour to the north, Janet and her family. What an amazing family! We had such a great time chatting with Janet and Anthony and meeting Adam and Jean. Eventually the rest of the family came home and we were able to meet the rest of the clan. What amazing children! Thank you so much for such a lovely day and the cute gift for our imaginary baby.
Jinx has also been keeping us busy. Even though you would never be able to tell by this picture. She's quite the active dog, she loves to run around and chase down balls and toys. She's becoming quite good at catching her toy in mid air. I'm quite impressed by this. I'll have to see if I can catch her in action one day.
My two nephews have been keeping me on my toes too. I love those two little boys and love being their Tita (auntie in Spanish). I'm so happy I'm able to watch them grow up.
And of course, meeting all these wonderful people and others who couldn't be there that day have made this journey so much more bearable.
I've made an executive decision as well. I am no longer go to count LIDs anymore. It just makes me sad and I don't like feeling sad.
Congrats to Michelle and Mark as well. I never thought it would've taken us this long but I am grateful we have each other to lean on.
