13 divided by 100, multiply by.....

Oh who am I kidding. No matter how you do the math...it doesn't make it any better. We have posted 100 times and we are now at 13 months waiting!!! Yipee!! Do you hear the enthusiasm. If you don't it's because it's not there. But seriously this last month went by fairly quickly. I've noticed that I've had "butterflies" or is it "bats" in my stomach pretty consistently now. Maybe that means it's getting closer. So as we speak our album is seeing some light. It's a little dusty, it's been sitting there a while. But it can see the daylight. It can breath a little easier. Some of the weight..or wait(ha..ha...I make myself laugh) has been lifted. We're nearing the top. And soon, hopefully in the next two months. Two very scared hands will gingerly unwind the ribbon that's holding it together. She will gingerly open the cover of the pale green album and see us for the very first time. She will hesitantly begin reading our letter to her. Maybe that's why the bats are doing somersaults in my belly!!!

Nobody deserves it more than you in in my book. I am so looking forward to celebrating your referral with you and for you to knock my California feet of the ground with all of the noise coming from Florida...those butterfly/bats mean something is good is coming your way. Keeping you in our prayers,
Janalee and Maya

I am invisioning how you will tell the group when you get the call! Is that weird? I think I am wondering how it will play out just as I did for us the first time and again this time. I know it is getting close and I can't wait to celebrate with you. I am thinking a very very expensive bottle of something or ether :)
