Merry Christmas!

PS. I can't get your message to play...dang it.

PSS. With that new header I just realized Tari looks like M & H. Don't you think? I see a resemblance. Seriously... no joke.

Ava's family said...

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!

I also see a family resemblance....I'm serious! I told Jeff that and he thought I was nuts, but I'm glad Special K also can see it!!!

You have me crying..
Can't wait to see her in your arms..
Hugs girly..

Special K said...

Now I can see it and oh boy.... water works on full blast. You're such a sweetie.

I know there's no way I could survive this wait without the support of other China adopter bloggers. All of you are the only ones who truly get what I'm feeling. Without that shared understanding I'd probably be in a rubber room drooling on myself by now. LOL!

It has not been an easy year and I just want to say that I love you and congratulations. i wish I was over there to gove lots of hugs and a 2 shoulders to cry and laugh on.

I haven't been doing "my job" as my dad says when it comes to blogging but the holidays have been hard - but I have been around peeking in and out hoping and waiting for some wonderful news.

Welcome to the family Tari!!
