Priceless & Anniversaries


We registered for Quint today at PBK. No, that's not the only place we're registered for the kids, but it's where his bedroom set is. So we went to the trouble of signing up and scanning all the things we felt would fit in his room.

There are some things stupidity can't buy. For everything else, there's an idiot waiting in the wings to insult the adoptive parents of the world - good intentions not withstanding.

*******************

Additionally, we observed two anniversaries today:


First, today marked twenty-one months LID for China and our little princess, Keira. Sputter, gag, cough, hack, kill me now. I swear, I have the gestation of an elephant. All the better for the elephant, in fact, because if I WERE an elephant and WERE pregnant - I'd be giving birth next month. Can I get an Amen?


Second, eight years ago today at a little Starb@cks in California - sitting on a patio and enjoying a cup of coffee - AB and I had our very first date. For those curious - I asked him out. He said yes. We met for coffee and flirted our way through a couple hours of conversation. We have never been apart since. Happy 8 years together ~ love of my life...

Hi Christie, Congratulations and Happy Anniversary x 2!!! We are right behind you, our #21 will be on January 21st.

And for the "stupid" people in the world, you just gotta turn the other cheek and say a pray for them and their ignorance, some people just don't know any better. Have a very blessed 2008!!

Love, Kristy

Happy 21 months! We just crossed over too! :)

I know we have not met before, but I was hoping I could ask you about how you are able to do a concurrent adoption using CHI? They are our agency as well and my husband and I would LOVE to do what you guys are doing... but have been told no if we use CHI to do both China/Ethiopia. If you have time and any advice I would very much appreciate talking to you! My email is: stephanie@jiinkin.com

THANK YOU!!!
