Checkin' in

I feel I should apologize for the roller-coaster ride I've taken you on with our domestic adoption. Now I see why they told us at our informational meeting NOT to post stuff about it on your blog. Oops. Live and learn, right? But, I've already spilled the beans, so there is no reason to stop now.
So, our adoption is, indeed, moving forward. Thank you for all of your comments, emails, texts, phone calls, and PRAYERS! I am so blessed to have such an incredible support system here! We are back on track, and SO looking forward to meeting our baby!


This picture of Lily has nothing to do with this post. I just threw it in here cuz I know some of you miss seeing her cute, little mug. (Don't worry, she's not foaming at the mouth...it's just powdered sugar from a very healthy breakfast the other morning.)

She is doin' great! Today she had her "holiday parties" at preschool AND dance class, so tonite she declared "This was the BEST Thursday EVER!"

Hope you are enjoying all the beauty of the season as well...

I love sweet Lily's face! Her breakfast only made her sweeter.:) Is that possible???

So thankful that you let us know what's going on, Nikki, so that we can hold you up in prayer.

Adoption sure isn't for the weak at heart, is it!

Praying here, sweetie!

I have been praying for you and will continue to pray for you. I actually like it that you talk about it on the blog, very realistic adoption talk! And of course, it helps us to know how to pray for your family. May God bless you this Christmas.

I am so sorry to hear about your heartbreak. Just now being able to blog since I'm off work for awhile. Glad to hear things are back on track. Our year long adoption roller coaster ride threw us completely off with the last heartbreak so we are on hold indefinitely. More details in a blog for next week. For now, just enjoy your time with your family!
Merry Christmas!!! ; )
