Congratulations Oatsvall Family!!!

Well, Jay had his test this morning at 8am. We won't get the results until early next week, probably Tuesday...I'll let ya'll know how everything turns out. Thank you so much for all your concern, kind words, and prayers -- I told Jay he didn't have to worry about a thing -- "The bloggin' community has us covered, babe!" A special "shout out" to RedMaryJanes for sending well-wishers my way. I was really touched by that! Have I told you all lately that I love you???


My last couple posts have been a bit drab, dreary, and depressing so tonight I want to post some GOOD NEWS!!!




Our wonderful friends in Tennessee (that hosted our reunion) have a new daughter! They found out on Tuesday that they were matched with a little girl on the Children Of Promise/Special needs list. She is a beautiful,almost 2 year old from China. When I got the phone call from Gwen I was crying and shaking as if it were happening to me! Please, if you haven't already, go over and congratulate Gwen and see some pictures of her newest miracle.
We are soooo happy that our friends will soon have another child to love and we are so glad that this little cutie from China will soon have such a wonderful family to spend the rest of her life with. Congratulations Scott, Gwen, Jeremiah, Elijah, Emily...and Maggie!!!

We love you guys and miss you. Lily keeps asking to see all her friends from China. Yesterday she was convinced that Sophia was coming to spend the night. Luckily, my niece and two nephews came for a sleepover, so she had a blast. Also, we were looking (again) at pictures from the reunion and I pointed at one of them and asked Lily who it was. She replied "Emiwee Woo"! I thought it was so cute. (her name is Emily Rui, pronounced Roo).

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I'll post again Tuesday.

Sure hope you hear good news soon on your hubby.

I so envy your travel group getting together -- I don't see ALL of ours doing so (but many would do anything to do so). Makes me smile just thinking about it!

Have a great Sunday!
