Okay, my faithful blog friend Sen (why am I not connected with you on facebook) asked me about Baby names. Let's play. I already have a name picked out because...I like it! So, why don't you guess. Feel free to give me your feedback, I'm not going to change it...it will just be fun. Will I tell you before referral? No. lol If you know her name...play along and act stupid. ;-)
Top Names for Baby I:
So much for 5. It's in there. Good Luck. Maybe I'll narrow it down to Top 5 in a week or so.
Just boring ole me. I had dreams of posting baby pictures of me up until the referral but that didn't happen. I had dreams of taking pictures until she came home but that isn't happening. Oh, I had so many dreams. Now, I just dream of getting up everyday and putting one foot in front of the other. Yes, it is like that some days. UGGGGHHH!
I have started shopping again. Yay! Working on the nursery and playroom. I'm busy. Maybe I do have some pictures to post.
Who knows, I may get a burst of energy one day.
If you still read this...you get much credit for following my longggggg journey. Thanks for your support.
Although this journey has been a long one, I do not regret any moment of it! However, you may if you have been following for these years. This journal is being created for my daughter so she will never have any doubt from where she came, who she is and how much she is loved. Before I decided to adopt I lacked motivation, she motivates me and makes life worth living again.
