Crazy man (with Cuban accent)

The past couple of months have been CRAZY! First I should mention that Hubby and I celebrated 10 years of wedded bliss this month. My Yaya passed away just a few days before my anniversary, that would make the third death in my family that occured during my anniversary month (My Dad, His Dad and now my Grandmother). Oh and I can not forget the King of Pop, Farrah... Whew, what is the deal.

Happy news, a great freind through this adoption proccess got a referral for an adorable baby girl. Her wait was about 7/8 months. I'm so happy for her. Last month I got to strut my stuff on the runway at our church's style show for our annual women's conference. I was sooo nervouse but it turned out to be really fun. I even got an offer from one of the boutique owners to model for theie catalog and the photographer offered me a free phot shoot. HA! this could be the start of something new ( ANTCM) America's next top Christian model. and over the age of 30? hey it could happen.

God is alway working me through patience. Even when I would find out that I was pregnant I wanted to know what the sex of the baby was, go shopping for baby clothes...and was ready to hold the baby and behold his/her beautiful face. This adoption proccess can be a lil crazy man (Cuban accent) It's about to be seven months of waiting and I'm already on edge waiting to get The Call. I know that I need to get it out of my pretty little head and come to grips with the chance that it may be months before I get a referral. Hubby thinks it will be the end of Sept. begining of October. I'm hoping that it'll be more like the end of August begining of Oct. I know that courts close in Ethiopia for the rainy season so that realistically will take us to the very end of the year begining 2010! what do I do with all this time on my hands waiting for baby? I want to buy things for her in preparation for her arrival but I want to have the funds needed to bring her home and not be broke. I trust that God will povide but I need to be a good steward over what He has given me. I hope I'm not rambling on, I just have so much on my mind. It's all good:-)
