H is trying his camera skills again! If only the dog would sit still!!!

So, I thought I'd have a go at taking one of H with Chewy... H had to hold Chewy down with his hands and feet, before I could get a clear shot!!!

Yesterday, we had some much needed rain. You wouldn't even know that it was winter 20 days ago. Its been sunny and really warm most days - weird for September! Today it was sunny again, and clear skies, and about 22 degreesC.
(71.6 degreesF)
It has also just occured to me, that right around now, we have hit the "3 year" mark, from our first step towards our daughter in China. It was about this time in September, 2004, that I rang the Agency that handled international adoptions to send me out an info pack on international adoption. We didn't send in any paperwork until January 2005. Wow. 3 years. From the time I asked for that initial information, we've been praying for our daughter and her birth family. The scary part is... I can't even be sure that she's even born yet! Mini, you are loved already. You are a prayed for member of our family... you just don't know it yet!

I love your doggy!

3 years? That's depressing. Totally worth it in the end...but in the middle, it just stinks.
