Waiting Family Dinner


I went to the waiting family dinner for my adoption agency last night. I took my parents with me. It was very interesting to see people with their new babies and the referral pictures. It is a good thing to see because you know that soon it will happen for you in the future.

I also visited with my grandparents today. We played poker and my mom was the big poker champ. I started out strong but lost the most. Tomorrow we'll play dominoes. It's my grandfather's favorite game. He was having a bit of trouble playing poker. It made me sad. But, I learned today that he had been hit by a streetcar when he was a boy and had to have stitches. It's those little stories that I want to remember and write down and share with Grace about her great grandfather. He led a very interesting life.

I'm posting the picture of my ladybug troll. I'm hoping she brings our May group good luck and fast referrals (come on May!)

That is a hideous troll! Maybe if you send the CCAA a pic they'll be so scared we'll get our referrals early
