On a very bright note, one of our best friends has decided to move forward to adopt from Guatemala....We are SOOO excited for them...Bianca will have another Guatemalan girlfriend!
Some of the old high school buddies are getting together this week. I am excited to see everyone and we will be working on our class reunion coming up this fall......15 years.....Is that really possible?
As always thanks for your prayers and thoughts.

Dang, so hard to envision what it will be like to actually bring Bianca home....SOOO excited and also just kind of freaked out. WOW, so this is an every day thing! I can only imagine what our days will be filled with! I feel like I will just spend my time looking at her! I know we will have to do other stuff too, but I have a lot of looking to do! So many days of waiting to see this child, once we finally get home we are going to have lots of family time and week day lunches with dad. Am I going to start calling Eric and dad? Geez, I cannot go there! Okay I need to compose myself. I just feel like it is right around the corner for the first time in a long time! I have been reading about so many people who are going to get their kids and it makes me so excited. To think about these little lives and who many people are invested in bringing them home. It has really given me a whole new view of God. And I guess exactly how big he really is. That he can orchestrate bringing all of these kids to their families is really beyond me. I think that is why I am so excited about the non-profit organization that we are starting. I can't wait to be a part of bringing people together with their children. Just since we really started to move forward with the group, just a week or so ago, I have had 5 people talk to me about adoption. Now is that a coincidence or what?

Well, we are hearing of many people getting out of the PGN! I have to admit, I wish it were us! Is that sooo wrong??? Okay, I am just going to put this out there.....I am anticipating 4 more weeks or less...I would prefer tomorrow of course, but I know that little lady will be home when the time is right!
Now, I know some of you might be a bit confused about the blog updates (Aunt Judy). I am not sure that I said I would update EVERY day, though I know you must think my life is just that exciting! I will try to be on at least a few times a week however, and I realize that no matter what I write people are really here for the new Bianca photos so I will keep them coming! I have been having a really good humor about the wait for B the past week or so. I am not saying that I do not have a pity party every now and then during this tedious wait, but in the scheme of things our adoption process has been pretty amazing.
I had an idea the other day...Ran it past my mom, and she pretty much thought I was nuts. Now that I have all of the cool baby stuff, I thought, why not try them out? I could put a doll in that hot rod stroller I bought and roll that thing around the neighborhood. You know, just as a warm up.....Then maybe head into Target with the new baby sling I bought...Again, I could put a doll in there, just to get a feel for the thing.....Wow, would people talk...And wouldn't that be fun to really give them something to talk about over dinner. I could quickly fill the crazy lady role...no big stretch there!
Anywho, it is late which is typical of my long rants. Eric is a morning person and of course, I am a big time night owl. I am guessing we will have to make some "small" changes when Bianca gets home. Still trying to decide what her nickname might be. I guess that will come with time. She is just so cool. Have I said that like one million times on this site?
I hope everyone is doing great. Let's send some seriously postive energy to the people within the Guatemalan PGN! We are ready to bring home that child already!
