In adoption news, I have one more section of the essay to complete. I have spent about hours if not longer on it so far and will need to go back and edit tomorrow morning. I am very anxious to get our application sent off. I was originally hoping tomorrow, but it might end up being Thursday. Got two of my test results I had been waiting for from my Dr this afternoon and everything else is pretty much done. I will make copies of paperwork. I also talked with the director again at the placing agency and she was able to clear up a few questions. I look forward to meeting her in person in the near future, she seems so nice on the phone.
On Christmas my Mother-in-law gave me a card with some gift cards and a check for $500. On it was written baby gift. My emotions (already frayed) could not be spared and I got all teary. I was glad she was there to see my heartfelt reaction and she came over and gave me a big hug. I am hoping we get some time to sit down with Hubby's parents soon and answer any questions they may have. They seemed a little quiet about it last night and I felt a little weird about it.
So I survived Christmas. One of my favorite gifts was a Hallmark Ornament from my sister. It looks like a shell and is heart shaped. On it is written "Always remembered. Always in our hearts." I cried, I loved it and had seen it at the store a few days before. Love you twinnie.
