Vacation is over and other news

We had a great time on our vacation, although it had to be cut short. We made a fast trip home on Wednesday after getting a call that Garland's grandma wasn't doing very well. We got to the nursing home at 8:00 p.m. or around there, on Wednesday night, and she passed away the next evening. During our time in Balsam, we had a lot of fun and caught quite a few fish. I was glad to be back to work today just to get a break from being on the road so much. It was an eight hour drive to Balsam and then another eight back. So, I'm tired of being in the van!

We are one month down in the wait. I have no idea how many more we have to go. It's so unpredictable right now. I feel like for the past 9 months, I've been saying "probably a year before we get her." That number doesn't seem to be going down any yet. I guess we'll have a better idea this time next year of when our actual referral will come. For now, we just sit back and wait.

During our vacation, I bought Sadie her first Asian baby doll. She is the cutest little thing. Here is a picture of her:
