Congratulations and a weekend away......

Busy, busy day for me today. First gotta work my regular job then put in a couple of hours at my second job. After that I'm off to my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary party for a few hours. Then rushing home to change, grab my suitcase, and wait on the curb for Connie and Stacy to pick me up. We'll be on our way to spend the weekend in Detroit where we'll meet up with Catherine for a girl's weekend. Why Detroit? Because Catherine is Canadian and Detroit is the halfway point for all of us. It's not like we really planned a November trip to Detroit just to see the place. I hope to get some sleep sometime before the sun comes up again but we'll see how it goes.

Great news that the CCAA is finally sending out the referrals we've all been waiting for. They've matched everyone through August 25,2005. Unfortunately, the girls and I will be in withdraws this weekend with no internet access. But we'll be sure to raise a toast to all those who get to see the pictures of their new daughters this weekend, including Julie and Lisa. And we won't forget about Rod & Mary-Mia who'll be flying home from China with their twin girls, Rose & Marie.
Congratulations to all the new mommies and daddies!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! See ya Monday.

K, I hope you had a great time. I found your blog through a friends blog - can I just say it is terrific! I love reading! I went through International adoptions with a few very close friends & even went with one of them to pick up their angel...no words can describe that. I am a teacher & a few years back I went to Mainland China & visited some of the Orphanges...I will get those memories for the rest of my life. I wish I could have brought them all home!
Mia is one lucky little lady....blessing to you & your journey! Hey...great halloween costumes too! Hope you don't mind me checking out your blog. Feel free to check mine out too(or link) if you like. I am a SMBC - working towards motherhood.
