Every tree limb overhead seems to sit and wait, while every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road...

What She's Been Up To

(Sending the welcome bag for D.)

If you had asked me last year I would have bet money, a lot of it, that I'd never see J holding anything with the word 'Sassy' on it. Baby girl is making him soft!

A few words about Baby D:

"She was so happy and laughed the whole time we were in the room." ~ April 1, 2010

"Her favorite caregiver walked up as we were taking the pics and D went crazy with happiness." ~March 31, 2010

"Whenever he sees her picture he gets all excited and says "D------!" (Cindy's son, little T.) ~March 29, 2010

"D kept tapping my watch, so I took it off and put it her foot. She would take it off and try to put it back on her foot. She is one special little girl and we do love her!!" ~March 17, 2010

"She recognizes her name, says a-goo, and turns towards people when her name is called." ~March 13, 2010

"She is an easy easy, deep from her toes smiler." ~March 11, 2010

"This girl is not passive either. She arches her back and shrieks when she is unhappy. For such a calm, gentle girl she sure knows how to express herself!" ~March 11, 2010

"She loves to stand on my legs with her full weight on her legs. So strong!" ~March 8, 2010

She is sparkly, and strong, and loves to laugh. I think she will fit just fine with us.


  1. How beautiful is all of that!?! Wonderful!!!!

  2. Tell J it looks good on him. It suits him just fine. I am SOOOO SOOOOO excited for you guys!
    *BIG HUGS* (for both of you)

  3. What great updates on your sweet babe! :)

  4. Guess this means I'm no longer a "stalker" and now officially a "follower." Just got home this afternoon. Took a hot shower, flushed the toilet and started a load of clothes...just because I could!!

    Could you possibly send me Cindy's email address? She left a sweatshirt at the Ritmo and I brought it home. Would love to send it to her.

    Big hugs from me to you,
    Jackie Johnson

  5. Doin' the happy dance for you (and J)! And your girl!


About Me

J and I have been married for almost 15 years. We have shared many adventures and a lot of watershed moments. In 2009 I began blogging and in 2010 we adopted our daughter from Ethiopia. In March of 2012 we began the process to adopt a little boy from Haiti. This blog follows the many twists and turns on the road to our two children and beyond.
