These may be really random...
First, an update that we did have our hearing and were approved for placement on Friday. That means that Cala will be able to come home with us, legally, when she is born. Our attorney said it made us the 'official babysitters' for her for the first year of her life, until the adoption was final. I'm going to say it, I didn't love that term, but he's a guy, so I don't take it personal!!
Second, It amazes me that so many miracles happen everyday. I want to reiterate what a miracle Cala is! If you haven't read the story about how we got matched up with our Baby Mama and all of that, you should, it's amazing! But I also wonder, will I ever know that feeling of having a baby, carrying it to term, delivering, all of that? Will that be part of MY miracle story? I'm just ready for it to be my turn. And what if it never is? That may be God's plan, but I'm sure not ready for that! I just keep praying and keep standing firm that He has a perfect plan. Sometimes I just feel like the whole world is marching on without me and I'm left behind, wanting to be in the game, but not being picked yet (I was never good at sports, so not being picked is typical!).
Third, Do you know how funny it is to watch my 100+lb white shepherd clean my 1.6 lb chi-poo? They crack me up, as it's the most unlikely pairing, but they clearly love each other--hilarious!!
Forth, I feel sorry for people who don't have friends like mine. To name all of my friends, that I consider close and special would be a little bit bragadocious! Seriously, I feel infinitely blessed everyday when I realize how many people love me, care about me, support me, and are TRULY there for me. I've had some very hard situations where I realized that someone I thought was a true friend turned out not to be, but I can't really complain, considering the number of phenominal friends I have. Thank you to each of you for touching my life and making me a better, stronger person!
Finally, who loves HOUSE??? I do! I do! And it comes on tonight, so that's where you'll find me!
Happy Monday everyone!
