In other news, we went right on through November without my even mentioning Adoption Month! Congrats to those of you who had adoptions processed!

I don't know if that is encouraging or discouraging (!) but it is meant to be the former:) Your day will come!

If I owe you an email it is coming! Thanks so much for your kind words, prayer, and support!
