Let it snow! Let is snow! Let it snow!

Like everyone else in the northeast, we're in the midst of a snow storm. It's been coming down steady for over 24 hours. It's not supposed to let up for a while. It's a pretty snow, at least. The kind that falls like sugar and sparkles like diamonds! We're going to have a white Christmas, afterall. That makes ME very HAPPY!

So my sister, Donna, decides to brave the elements and take the girls to the park for pictures. They turned out REALLY nice. For your enjoyment .....

It's Been A While....

It's been a while since I posted. And, for that I apologize. I am alive and well! And I am sure I have a lot of catching up to do on all your blogs! I've really missed my blog friends, alot. Thanks to everyone who sent little notes checking up on me.
Basically, once we found out we weren't bringing home the September baby, I started to avoid anything "adoption". Thus, it became difficult for me to keep up on my blog. In many ways, I am still avoiding "adoption" of any sort. Most days it doesn't seem like a reality anymore and hope doesn't exist.

It's been over 12 weeks since our caseworker gave me the sad news. I have heard nothing from her since. . . NOTHING. I respect our agency and all the workers, therefore, I am trying very hard not to think negative thoughts. BUT - telling a couple they aren't getting a baby they had high hopes and not following up, to me, is very poor. I simply cannot wrap my brain around why they don't put effort into keeping communication open between themselves and hopeful, adoptive couples.
So, we've been busy doing other things.. .. working hard, going out, doing things around the house, etc.
That's my adoption up-date. Wish I had better news to share.
