Well to let everyone know that I am alive out here. Yes, I had a great fourth of July. No I did not get to go to New York. Surgery prevented that. I am on 6 weeks of recovery from the removal of a football sized cyst & my left ovary. I am trying to walk without pain, well just about do anything without pain. I have a 12 inch incision from my navel to my pubic bone filled with tons of staples resembling a railroad track! It hurts to say the least. I have made it through week 1 of recovery & am barreling through week 2. The staples are supposed to come out on Wednesday, August 6th. Yippee! I hate how it looks with the staples. Anyway due to this 'injury' the calendar on the left is drastically wrong, I will update it soon. Just wanted to put out this quick post for info!
Adopting is awesome. It's a beautiful journey that is filled with every emotion possible. We are just beginning this trip, this adventure towards expanding our family. This journey is also VERY expensive. The cost of adopting is from $25,000 to $40,000.00 just to bring our sweet child home. For us, no monetary amount is unreachable with faith, work and the loving support of the 'village' around us. We will be fundraising like crazy over the next months. There will be fun giveaways, donuts, exciting events and the ongoing production of my Art for Adoption personal projects. The Etsy store I have created (a work in progress itself) is linked above. We also have added the Donation link above - there will be some pretty cool events linked to it coming up. We also will be adding links to some other sites that aid in fundraising for adopting families. As those appear so will more information. For now, we thank you for visiting our Kingdom and for supporting our journey. Your prayers & thoughts are blessings we never expected, are grateful for and excited to share with the child we will bring home to us all.
I am a writer looking to see my name in a bookstore one day! I am cheerful to a fault. People actually think that I am on some sort of medication that makes me perky most of the time, Building my bridges, not ripping them down.
I treasure my friends, they are my family. To me my closest friends are always referred to as Darl'n, Gorgeous, Cutie, or Beautiful. I love to read just about anything and pride myself on a well versed vocabulary. I love shopping & am an impulse shopper: purse,shoes & jewelry. I love my family and strive to forge close relationships with them as often as possible. I have a weakness for animals.
Alabama Football is a religion in my house, that on Saturdays, I faithfully attend every fall.
I love to cook, working during the week limits the experiments but on the weekends watch out!Southern heritage in all forms tends to make me very nostalgic. I have an emotional connection to my surroundings that is astounding to myself sometimes.
