How Grateful I Feel

We here in Utah especially Salt Lake have finally received snow. It is so beautiful! I love watching it fall gently through the sky. I think there was close to 6 inches outside this morning. One reason I find myself to be blessed is that I can sit and watch it fall and I do not have to be out driving in it or working in it. I feel so blessed to live in area of the country where I can see and experience all four seasons that God has given this earth. I am giddy with anticipation for Spring to come. My favorite flower the Tulip will be here any day and brighten my day every time I see it.

I am convinced that now is not the time for us to adopt. I have even heard stories of people saying oh so and so in my family was preganant and we forgot that you were adopting. We have spent a lot of time and money to get the word out. I am not sure what else we can do to make people remember. I will admit there is a bit of frustration in the back of my mind. But, oh well.

Mike has interviewed at two universities this last month. Excitement is in the air at our home. The two places were Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. Both seem like wonderful schools and everyone treated Mike very well. The rest of the year holds great excitement for us.

On March 30 I will be holding the last mission reunion that is hosted by me. It will start at 7:00 PM and it will be held at 951 East 100 South. Bring a dessert to share and send me photos at oh2liveincanada@yahoo.com so that I can include it in a power point presentation I am putting together. It can be while you were in the mission or if you have visited since then. Check out the Mission website at http://www.mission.net/canada/halifax/index.php . Hope to see you there. If you can come pass on the info.

I wish all of you the best!

Adoption: It's about love! We're approved to adopt, so if you know birth parents who are considering adoption, direct them our way.
