I found this site on another forum and thought I'd stop in. I'm married to a firefighter (10 years) and we have an 8 year old bio son. We are currently waiting (and waiting and waiting.....) for our referral for a baby girl from China. Our LID was 8/30/05. I'm a special ed teacher; school starting next week is going to seriously cut into my computer time spent keeping up on the latest rumors*S*. Our 8 year old will be traveling with us when we go to China. I love to travel, scrapbook, and read. I started sewing last year to help pass the time and recently completed my 100 Good Wishes Quilt.

Welcome Paula!! How exciting, could you be in the next group to receive the call? I saw that our agency (Holt) just got referrals yesterday but I didn't see what the LID's were. I bet this has been one long year of waiting for you.

I'm Marla, by the way, mom of 4, including 2 beauties from China. I'm so excited that you found our group and I cannot wait to hear all about your referral! Be sure and post here when you get it. I will check out your blog as well. I wish I were as industrious as you with the sewing, I have the squares for my daughters' quilts, but have yet to find someone to put them together!

Looking forward to getting to know you!

Hey Paula!

Nice to have you on board. Good luck with enduring the waiting process. You're going to be holding your baby in your arms in no time, now!!

I'm a special ed. teacher, as well . . . we'll former spec. ed. teacher. Now I'm a SAHM. We considered China as well (and haven't completely ruled it out).

Nice to have you around!
