The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

A month from tomorrow

Have you ever waiting for something for so long that you began to believe it would never happen?  The last 8 years of my life have been just that, waiting followed by more waiting... waiting to become a mother.

I've been sitting on some pretty exciting news and I think it's time to introduce everyone to my daughter Aster Elisabeth Yun...
My husband and I started the process of adopting a child from China back in the fall of 2005.  We had no idea at that time it would be almost 5 years before we would meet our beautiful little girl, but in a month from tomorrow we will be boarding a plane to meet her and bring her home. 

Aster was born in Hubei province in central China, and is just over 9 months old right now.  We will be spending a week with her in Hubei and then another week in Beijing before we make the journey home.

Somethings in life are worth waiting for.

Safe travels.... You will be an awesome mama!

This is one of my secrets I no longer have to keep inside. Thank goodness - for a second there I was afraid I'd explode!!

She is so so beautiful. She's a lucky little girl to be given such lovely parents - I'm so happy for your entire family and the happiness she will bring.

I'll be home in either late august or late October - hopefully we can schedule a playdate if you're not too busy settling in!
