This weekend was great and I hope yours was too. Danielle (my friend from TX) flew in, I had an Arbonne party at my house Friday night, I saw the Katy Perry 3D movie (amazing) Saturday afternoon, celebrated a friend’s birthday Saturday night, had breakfast at my favorite local diner this morning and then took Danielle back to the airport... then I went and got a manicure with my friend Elizabeth, (hello, cheap therapy session...) followed by an amazing dinner at their house, (homemade potato and asparagus soup…wowza. That stuff is gooood.) Did I mention they live across the street? Good golly I love our neighborhood.
Here's the latest:
It's been 6 weeks since our court date. The original estimate given to us for the processing of the adoption decree and birth certificate was 6 weeks, so we're still in the normal waiting period for those documents... However, if history proves as any lesson, I'm trying to brace myself for another long stretch of waiting...SO if it crosses your mind...please pray that Abiella's health continues to improve and that she is filled with a constant joy, an all-encompassing peace and a deep sense of security.
Also, Lindsay over at Trial by Sapphire asked me to write about my experience as an adoptive mama thus far. I truly enjoyed writing that post and I am beyond honored that she published it on her blog today!! So go check it out!! (Lindsay is an amazing woman and a powerful advocate for children in the foster care system. You can read about her amazing work as a CASA here.)
Have a blessed Monday folks!
