Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

2006 in review

Well, it really started in 2005 when we went to the Steven Curtis Chapman/Mercy Me Christmas Concert.
2006 was a great year. We had talked about international adoption but never really talked about until this year.
What has happened? We have done some improvements on the house, including built in shelves and getting new flooring and have really enjoyed getting new furniture. It was a year of dreams and imagination.
March-my first trip to the Ga aquarium
In April, we got in touch with an old college friend Jeff, and have enjoyed his company since. IT was the month, we heard of the lovely Val. Who new we would be hanging out with both of them in 2006 in Atlanta?
May- The Pentz family Disney Cruise. By far the best Pentz vacation yet. We had a blast and it was here, that my heart great for Chinese adoption. We met Reece and Marissa and I am happy to say we will see them on Friday. This cruise was just an awesome experience.
June- trip home to celebrate Owens first bday
July- trip home for Basils first Bday
September- Our first First Friday to meet other people who are adopting..
In October, we applied with our adoption agency.
In October, we celebrated our 5th anniversary by heading back to Williamsburg,Va where we honeymooned. We even stayed at the same facility. It was truly romantic and I can not wait to go again. Im so glad we did a day trip to DC!
During this trip, we were approved for our adoption and went to orientation 2 weeks later!
Also, in October, we headed to Tn for the wedding of the year, of Jeff and Val. Not only did we witness the lovely Vals, but we saw all kinds of old friends..It was awesome.
November included our homestudy and lots of thinking. Thanksgiving included myself, Michael, Peter and Gary.
December-Christmas time..Enough said..Saw Christmas lights, went to the Michael W Smith Concert, enjoyed some time off and had a Christmas party at our home.

Well, that's it..2006 was eventful. 5 years with Michael so far as been wonderful?
I am blessed beyond belief and I don't deserve all the things God has given me. What about you?

What will 2007 bring? I have no idea. I hope to be logged in to the China system and begin the long wait. I hope to be more of an encourager to Michael and others. I hope that I think of others far more than I think of myself. I want to be happy. I want to be joyful. I want to make others happy.. We will see.
Dont forget to check out our adoption blog here for updates.!!!!
Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes!

Looks like you had a a very fulfilling and exciting 2006. I hope 2007 brings you all you deserve and more. I'm sure with the adoption it will be just as exciting and eventful as 2006.

I'm adopted, so I'm awfully excited about your adoption process! I hope it goes as quickly and smoothly as it can, and that you'll be bringing a little one home soon.

Wishing you a wonderful and blessed 2007!
