I love my little blog. It’s a fun fad, but I think the whole concept might just stick around. I love getting to share pictures of my precious babies with our friends around the country, across the street, and around the world. I love that they all know where we are in the adoption process without having to explain it over and over in person. I love having a place to vent my joys, my frustrations, my hopes, my thoughts about my God. I love my new blog friends and the odd way we’ve gotten to know each other via almost no direct communication. I would love my blog even if no one ever read what I wrote, but it’s also fun to see my site meter climb and see those dots accumulate, representing hits from all over. I love getting comments and trying to guess who those guests are who don’t leave comments. I love my readers – all of them, and hope that one day I might get to meet more of them in person. So thanks for participating in this little part of my life and for “listening” to all my ramblings today, over the past few months and for all the months to come.

i will say, if we judged by numbers, you would have a successful blog here. when i started, I didn't really want anyone to read, it was more just for me, but it's nice to have an audience!

Hi Laura! Hope all is well. Just wanted to say Hi and that I "stopped by" to see what was going on. :-)

Love the blog!

hello this is Natasha and Avi Joy Perryman, we just returned from Vietnam 7 weeks ago... I enjoyed looking through your pictures and site. I completely understand your feelings of not being in control, our journey was 17 months (started in Kaz, switched to Vietnam, waited for it to open, waited for referral, then waited to travel.) The only thing I can say is, God is preparing your perfect match for your family! All the waiting and prayer made me such a better mom and better traveler. You may have seen our site, www.perrymanadoption.com, I noticed you had the Homans as one of your favorites and we traveled with them. So, Its nice to meet you and I will check on your site often!
