Thanks Guys

My Philly friend figured out that she has to go to City Hall to get her local police clearance. So problem solved. Thanks for all your comments and advice. It's nice to know that there is help out here if we need it.

Nothing much to blog about. Sorry but my life is boring this week. I'm a little tired. Worked my second job last night which makes for a twelve and a half hour work day. Yucko! But it's help paying for the adoption so it's worth it. I've also taken on another very time consuming project which I'll maybe blog about this weekend. Just don't have the energy tonight.

But I did start my new year's resolution "I'm going to make it up the Great Wall!" diet this week so feeling pretty good about that. So far no problems or challenges. I've walked twice this week with Griffey. He's on a diet, too. He weighs 16 lbs which is big for a Pomeranian. Too big. So we're both trying to make some positive changes this year.

And congratulations to all the families that have received their referrals yesterday.!! There are many new beautiful babies who now have families. Click here and scroll down to the Jan 3rd post to see some of them. All LID's through September 27th, 2005 have now been matched. This means the wait is still around fifteen to sixteen months. Which is actually good news in a way. If they stay referring at this rate, I'll have Mia home before Christmas. This is my big dream. I'm not giving up hope yet.

Yawn. G'nite.......

hey krista, that's super about your diet (or great wall of china diet I should call it! lol) i am always amazed how good I feel even after a day of eating and exercising.
I'm really glad about your friend, I was thinking about her several times.

Mia will be home for Christmas 2007 - I feel it in my bones! Or that could just be the creaking coz I'm gettin old!

I was excited to hear how many days they got through. Hopefully things will stablise for the next couple of months and pick up after they finish Nov 2005.

Glad she got it all worked out.

Now I'm curious to know what has been consuming the time :0) Hmmmm???

I'll be in touch.

good attitude Krista!
This year I will have a new positive attitude about the wait...I will...I will...even if it kills me!!!!

Good for you! I can not wait for this cold to be gone. We have a new treadmill waiting for my feet to get going!

Positive. Actually, when you put the wait time in those terms it makes me feel a little better. As long as they stay the course (not even asking for an improvement) ...fingers crossed.

Good luck with the diet and exercise program...I'm trying to lose at least 20 pounds before summer. Not to climb the Great Wall, but to be able to go to the pool without wearing a mumu!

And I'm hoping and praying you'll be celebrating Christmas 2007 with your Mia!
