A great day!


Today I got to attend my first meeting as a member of the advisory board for the Utah Adoption Connection.  They do amazing things and I am so excited to be part of it...I can tell I am going to learn alot!  I wish I already knew everything they knew...but I am a newbie so I will be learning for a while.   They have some amazing things coming up this year....I will be posting about them this week.


Today I saw my own writing in print...I almost cried.  I know that sounds funny but I feel so honored and excited!   You can read it here.  But if you read my blog you have already read it...they took it from a post on my blog and put it in the Feb 2010 Utah's Adoption Connection magazine/newsletter   I am going to scan the pages and put them here on my blog for my own personal history....it is a beautiful 2 page spread with waiting childrens pictures on it.  

The BEST thing about today is the date that I got to add to my calendar.  March 12th we get to finalize our adoption of Spencer!  I can hardly contain myself!!!!!   Almost 3 years ago we started fostering in hopes of adopting and now we are seeing that dream come true!   I love my little guy so much and I can hardly wait to finalize and take him to the temple!!!!   
What a fantastic day!!!!!!!

Oh I'm so excited for you! You'll have to tell me about what you guys do when you finalize, as far as celebrations go. I need ideas! :)

I can't believe you've had Spencer for 6 months already! Congratulations!

Congratulations! We are so happy for you and your family. It is great that you are on the UAC. What a difference you will make. We are going to our Foster Orientation on Feb. 10. I am excited and nervous all at once. All the best.
