Upcoming Event

Cora and Jim---The proud parents
Cora, my granddaughter, always wanted to be a Mommy as you can see from the picture. She was practicing on Mickey Mouse. Now it's going to become a reality. Her and Jim will be going to China to pick up their daughter. When adopting it can be a very long pregnancy with all kinds of loopholes, surprises and disappointments and finally a sucess. Just like biological parents, they will soon forget all the pain of it because it was so worth it. We still don't know exactly when, but should be very soon. She has a lot of family waiting to hug her.

Her name is Chloe and birthday was September 27, 2009.

Chloe is stunning, Lorrene, and how lucky to have you as a grandmother:) THe photo of Cora cracked me up bc she is giving Mickey the bottle IN HIS EYE! I really needed that laugh today. THank you, and thank Cora. She put a smile on the face of this very sad mama, all the way in Siberia!

BTW, they will be only a few hundred miles awy from me when they are in China! I'm near the Chinese border in Russia!
