Really Good People

One of the many amazing things we've encountered on our adoption journey has been the Really Good People group. People who belong to this group had a way of asking how the process was going without actually asking. They provided encouragement and love and an occasional cup of coffee or glass of wine when a day was particularly difficult or called for celebration. Now they're the people who are gifting fabulous bags of clothing that their sons have outgrown, items for the nursery they're no longer using, or simple pieces of advice for parenting a fabulous little boy who we can't wait to bring home. And most recently making donations to the very orphanage where our little Bean is living which I, to be honest, can't find the words to describe our thanks for right now. These are truly Really Good People and we're blessed to have them in our lives.

Tomorrow hubby heads south to D.C. where the cherry blossoms are in full bloom and I, conveniently, am headed hours in the opposite direction to Way Up State, NY where I'm pretty sure they still have 5 feet of snow on the ground. Ah the adventures a week holds.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering - the ticker clocking 2 weeks 2 days does in fact look SO much better than when it clocked 2 weeks 3 days yesterday. So. Much. Better.

You know what?! By the time you're reading this, it says 2 weeks and 1 day.
That has to be infinitely better still!

The clock is-a-ticken!

yes, I do like that 2 weeks and 1 day at the top. I can't believe how quickly it's going...being extremely busy is very good. Hope you feel that way, too.

Glad you're blessed with those "really good people"...I have many of those in my life, too :)

Thanks for your comments. Yours was one of the first ones I followed too. That makes me really excited to think that when I started following yours, your dossier wasn't even in yet, and now you have a referral and a court date!! Awesome. I posted some pics today to make you miss the Midwest. ha!!
