Reminders of home and random introductions

When we lived in Washington there were plenty days when I thought enough with the rain! Who would have ever thought there would come a day when I would miss it? Today was such a "Washington" day. You know cloudy and cool with periodic rain showers. It was perfection! I opened all the windows and let the smell of the rain fill the house....aaah it is heavenly!

Today was Madelyn's first day of dance class. I will of course post some pictures as soon as I download them. But as all the moms were sitting there beaming with pride at their tutu clad little angels I started talking to the mom sitting beside me. She had two little African American baby boys who happened to be twins. This of course got the conversation rolling and her telling me how they adopted these two adorable twin boys. She gave me an email address and a search engine to try out regarding other adoption agencies. I went home and tried it out and was simply amazed at the wealth of information that was out there and all of these posts from agencies needing adoptive families for their birth mothers. I just couldn't believe I had never heard of this or found these sites when I was doing research. I more than likely would have never found them had I not been sitting in Rexburg, Idaho watching Madelyn showcase her dance moves. Maybe this is one of the reasons we had to move here and maybe nothing will come of it, but for now it has given me hope that maybe there is another baby out there for us.

Rain, good information and watching Madelyn dance.....I would say that is a very good day!

She was so cute and loved it so much! All day now she has asked if she can go back to dance class. I keep telling her she doesn't go again until next week, but you know children and time....they just don't get it! By the way your blog looks so good.

Thanks. I am glad she liked her class. I think my Emily spent her first year of dance telling me how much she loved it and then did nothing but chew on her sweater for the full hour of class every week. Kids. That's all I can say.

Well all Madelyn did was stare at herself in the mirror!

Hey there mandee, I finally got an account set up I think. For being an engineer myself I am horribly behind in the world of computers. I have no idea what to do with my site or how to look at jessica's. I understand hers is marked private or something, but I don't know how to ask to view it. Anyway, I am back in washington. Will is going to law school at UW and we live in a little basement apartment in seattle. We have only been here a week and a half, so things are crazy. I do like the idea of this blog site very much, I will try and contribute!

Yeah Kamile has joined us! Jessica just needs to add you to her list. What I wouldn't give to be back in Washington!! It will be fun to keep in touch with everyone. Good luck to you in settling in.
