Here's our final picture... not great but good enough. :) I have two others that are great, one done in studio and one from Christmas, so this will suffice. It's not easy getting one of us all! :)
Here are two more necklaces being sold to raise funds for our adoption. (you can click them to enlarge) If you'd like to see all available, please click on the Necklaces link under the header at the top of the page.
*** If you'd like one, please email me FIRST before donating!!! I will sell to the first one who asks and mark the ones SOLD as soon as I retrieve the email. Let me know which number necklace you are interested in... I will respond to your email letting you know if the necklace is sold or if you can go ahead with your donation and order! :)

So, here's where you come in. If you were thinking of adopting a child with HIV, what would you want to know? Or what questions do you have even as an "outsider"? What would you like to see on a page like this? Any help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
How odd is it though to travel outside my state of Illinois to an office in Indiana.
I will officially be fingerprinted on February 22 and really could care LESS WHERE it takes place! Just excited to get yet another hurdle out of the way in our process.
And last night...
I had my, what I'm guessing will only be, the first of many, dreams of my new little one.
As I've shared, we already have a name chosen for our new little girl, but will also be adding a portion of her given name as a middle name most likely. So until we're at a referral point I won't be sharing her name.
Anyway, SHE, was in my arms.
We were in a building somewhere here, it wasn't some run down thing on it's last legs.
BUT, something was happening and it was collapsing.
It was as if others didn't know this was going on.
And all I was doing was trying to get out with her in my arms, in my protection.
We ran through corridors, through doors, etc, just to make it outside...
But alas I woke up too soon to see the ending.
She is on my heart and mind.
My prayers of protection go with her.
This Valentine's Day, how about a unique gift for those loved ones in your life.
He also got two Didj games from us (again, major deals!) and two from Grandma and Grandpa. Grandma and Grandpa also gave him a Discov*ery Kids jungle greenhouse with soil, little shovel, and seeds. He LOVES it!
Olivia tried it later and was LOVING it too! It's great because it can be fun for any level of learning. There are options to just explore or play a game and you can set it for USA States, Countries, Continents, Oceans, and more. So fun!!!

Hence the title of my blog
Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong
Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow
Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom
But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
