This and That

Thank you all that wished our family well with the pending adoption. It turns out that the birth mother is unsure of her adoption decision. So after a few days away from home and total physical and emotional exhaustion B and B came home. They are sad, but glad to be home. Thanks for all the fashion advice for my Office Party attire. I went without anything around the neck. I was unsure about the opaque hose but I think it all worked out. I wish I had taken a picture of MBM and I because I was having the BEST HAIR DAY EVER! My design assistant, Emma, and I went fabric shopping on Sunday. Bought a few new things for inspiration...can't wait to get started! She is so must fun to be with and out of all my girls she is the best shopper. More tomorrow!

Ugh-so sorry to hear the news. That's extremely tough. I hope that in the near future there is a sucessful adoption awaitng them...got my fingers crossed.

I truly believe that adopting a child is one of the greatest gifts a couple can give. I applaud B & B for the strength and courage that it must have taken them to go through the adoption process knowing there would always be a risk for such painful disappointment. I'm glad they're home and I'll go right on saying lots of little prayers for them.

I'm sorry it didn't work out this time for B & B. It sounds like they are a wonderful couple. I'll be thinking positive thoughts that the next opportunity works out for them.

On a different topic, congrats on the best hair day ever. I know those days are far too few.

Is there a chance it will still work out? What a tough thing for all parties to go through. Best wishes to all of them.

My daughter loves to go the fabric store too--too bad I can't sew! We are usually just there to pick out fabric for her school costumes, which my husband then sews. But it's on my life-time to-do list!

Better to not adopt the baby if the birth mother is not sure. It would be harder in the end.

Did you take a picture of your evening??
