You Can Call Her...


ISLEY


Yes, Sen and Mercy you were right in the name game. Baby I's name is Isley "R" (oh, yes another letter we cannot share the official name of until we pass court). After looking at that beautiful face I just couldn't stand to call her Baby I again.

And no one got the date guess correct. And Rebecca you were the only one to guess 3 months for Isley's age. Now what do you win? I have no idea! LOL I'm terrible at mailing things, but since I'm in such a great mood these days send me your mailing address and I'll find a little token to send.

So, until I write the next post, here are some fun facts about Isley R, she:
  • is a happy and healthy 3 month old (translation...stealing the other kids bottles)
  • looks like a chocolate cherub (translation: sweet and beautiful with pouty lips) or an M&M (translation: round and bald head)
  • has the biggest prettiest eyes (translation: will be able to wrap everyone around her finger...my girl)
  • is very verbal (translation: has a big mouth like the rest of her family)
  • loves to play (translation: will be creative)
  • has the cutest little smirks and smiles (translation: will get into everything)
Thanks all for being such a great source of support throughout the years. And I am so excited about all the new Gladney APs that stopped by to say congrats...what an awesome community! Now, I can finally get to some real posts again! I'm even going to get a new blog and I have a new title I'm excited about! I'll move over when Isley comes home and the adventure begins. Wanna know what it is or should I wait? See I'm pretty verbal too (translation: big mouth). ;-)

YAY!! Happy referral!! It is a tremendous relief to see your little girl's face and know that she soon will be home with you... FOREVER! I'll never forget my referral day. It was the best day EVER!

I hope that your court date is SOON and that her visa is handled by our government quickly.

In my process is took just 3 months from referral to getting to tuck her in her very own crib in OUR house.


Congratulations to YOU and Isley -If you think this Christmas is terrific - just wait until she is helping you bake cookies 8-)

Good things really do come to those who wait
