Thank You!

I continue to be amazed by how many people have supported us thus far on our adoption journey.  I happened today to glance at the number of hits on my blog, and the number is close to 300 visits over the past 24 hours...amazing...I had to do a double-take to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me!  I have received comments on my blog, emails at home, supportive posts on the yahoo forum, phonecalls, and visits...all by people wishing us well and hoping that things are finalized quickly with our children.   One friend called just before noon today and suggested that we and our kids spend the afternoon together, starting with lunch out; I have no doubt that she knew I needed to get my nose out of my navel today...and it worked.  I also just noticed, with shock, that there are now 79 people following my did that happen?  The last time I looked, which (granted) was a while ago, the number wasn't nearly that high.  Wow, I say on all counts.

Thank you.  Thank you so much for every comment, email, phonecall, thought, post, well wishes, prayer, good vibe.  Thank you to every person who reads this blog - it really does blow me away that anyone is interested in anything I have to write about.  I feel so blessed by this community of people whose lives mine is intertwined with.  You bring tears of gratitude to my eyes.

Blessings and hugs to all,



  1. Hey Ruth!

    While maybe it's not all finalized, you're inching you're way're almost there! Can't wait until you can finally post that you're a family of 5!
    Thinking of you!
    (still waiting for court...can you flippin believe it?)

  2. Sorry for the not what you wanted news today. I had to add to this post that I can't wait for your numbers to slow down- that happens when your kids are officially yours and are at home and you are too bogged down to blog!

  3. Thank YOU Ruth for sharing with us! I started reading your blog a few months ago and you are one of the people who inspired me to start writing on my own blog. I love reading about your family's journey through this crazy adoption world and look forward to your announcement that those two kiddos are "officially" yours forever.

  4. We can't do this all alone. It is great to have YOU too!
