We finally have some more news about the adoption! Some abandonment decrees are almost finished (an abandonment decree is an official statement by a government that a child is abandoned and able to be adopted), and hopefully ours is one of them! If so, we should be able to go get our little sweetie in January/February as planned. We can’t wait! We are traveling up to Ann Arbor, Michigan next Tuesday to get our biometrics taken (whatever that means; I assume it means things like fingerprints, etc) with Homeland Security. Maybe I’ll get to meet Gary Quesenberry from TopShot on the History Channel, haha!
In other news, inspired by the pictures of snowfall in her town by my friend Mer, I broke out the Christmas music yesterday. Sorry Kelly, at least you don’t have to listen to it. :)
A few months ago I downloaded the iTunes Holiday Sampler, and I have to say it’s excellent. Three songs really stand out: ”It Snowed” by Meaghan Smith, “Dream a Dream” by Charlotte Church, and “A Snowflake Fell (And it Felt Like a Kiss)” by Glasvegas. All three very much worth a listen.
