This 'n' That

First, a very Happy Mother's Day to the many Mommy's out there! I hope that you enjoyed a wonderful day. And to the future Mommy's . . . the ones who are waiting for their precious children in China . . . you have been on my mind all day. I KNOW what it is to wait, to hope, to pray through this difficult time. This was a hard day for many women - please know how many of us understand and are thinking of you.

Next, a big, heartfelt thank you for the many well-wishes sent to Joe. He is feeling well, his face is healing, and he is in surprisingly little pain right now. He had a CT scan on Friday, as the Dr. wants to have a better look at the breaks in his collarbone. There is a chance we may be able to avoid surgery, and will know that tomorrow (Monday). Thank you for your prayers!

I neglected to post a follow-up note sent to me regarding my Sandra Boynton information from a few weeks ago. A myadoptionwebsite reader informed me that Kohl's Department Stores carried stuffed animals of some of the characters this spring. There were also books of lyrics and Cd's of all her songs, which are from the board books. They were $5 each and the proceeds go to charity. Thanks for the tip, Joy!

Lastly, a little tip for today that I've been meaning to share with you: The very popular book titled Baby Bargains. I found it to be tremendously helpful in preparing for Adrienne. It is now it it's 7th edition, and if you haven't read it, I highly recommend you pick up a copy! The full title is Baby Bargains, 7th Edition: Secrets to Saving 20% to 50% on baby furniture, gear, clothes, toys, and much more! You can find it at and other book sellers.
