Well, here we are in Ontario, living the good life and visiting family. Don't know yet what will come of my adoption, but the next few weeks and months will hopefully bring (if nothing else) clarification. Waiting, praying and enjoying the summer. Pictures to follow soon (really this time).
Hope you all are loving summer as much as I am.
