Love Maine, My DH and Mom!




We had such a great Maine/family visit - you will get so tired of seeing pictures and family stories - but - hey, this is what is happening while we WAIT!!!
Adoption news is very thin. We know that our wait will extend past 24 months and probably be at 30 - 32 months by the time we fly to China. We could be frustrated and blog lots of negative "STUFF" with all the rumors about agencies getting preferential treatment or referrals only going to November 30, 2005, or the lack of babies being abandoned (what???? this is a good thing!).

My Mom, sister Mel and I had lots of hugs from baby grand-nephew Brandon. Mel was babysitting him for a few days so lots of cute pictures - he has big beautiful eyes and always a smile!

And one picture of my DH trying to catch a fish worth keeping in Little Sebago Lake.... lots of fish but most very small. Here's a lucky, little bass that was thrown back!

I'm glad you are back safe and sound, but I miss you. Come back and we will celebrate your coming-up anniversay with more lobsters!

Ah yes, babysitting, or was he sitting & watching me? I have now completly "unbaby-proffed" my home & miss the little "biggin" as Ford called him!
All my love from about 70 degree Maine,
Mel

Yes, it's so easy to whine about our own selfish ideals, when we take our eyes off the "prize"... our sweet children.

Sounds like a wonderful trip with family...I have always wanted to visit Maine (maybe someday?)

Brandon is a little doll!

Glad you are home! trip sounds marvy and the photos look great - although Ford's catch is not even enough for a bite of sushi :)
