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

Good luck!!! Children are great!!
You'll have to keep us up to news, the first time Micheal will have to take care of her all by himself!!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I have a bunch of friends who've done the China adoption thing. One family brought all three of their girls here from China. What wonderful, special (smart!!) girls; your daughter will be the same, I'm sure.

Happy TT!

Fundraiser? Your in the Atl. area....what else? Krispy Kreme doughtnuts. What street corner are you going to be on? I'll be there.

Children are exhausting, infuriating, and amazing all at the same time.

Amy- your list was hard to read on the blog b/c of the colors in safari and firefox. I was able to read the list in the comment section.

These are all great things to look forward to! Hope the adoption process continues going well for you.

Denise Patrick said...

Good luck on the adoption!!

Barbara said...

I know it's going to be exciting to get your new baby home! And, it looks like you are going to be busy shopping and visiting, and letting everyone get to know the little one.

Check out my TT

Debi said... that is one sweet list!

Joy Renee said...

i'm so excited for you that THE day is getting closer. if there is one thing that could compete with books for my affection and win it would be babies

meanwhile, i'm still obsession on our communities upcoming library closure:
my #26 is 13 of the items vying for my attention in the last nine days before our library’s doors close indefinitly. 4 NF books, 4 novels and 4 DVDS plus #13 which is a bit of a cheat. I can only hope to complete two novels, help me decide which one to commit to

Amy said...

Oh Amy, I know exactly what you are feeling!! As soon as I found out we were having girls I went on a shopping spree and two weeks after they moved in we went on our first family vacation to Disneyland! Words cannot describe the excitement! I am SO happy for your family!

I am thankful that we just celebrated our 15th Gotcha Day on March 14th!

Sparky Duck said...

what a great list indeed. Though on the list should be sharing pictures!

um, gotcha day?

DebD said...

Amy, What wonderful things to look forward to. I am sure you're going to be such a wonderful, loving mom.

I have a fellow homeschooling blogging friend who lives in China. She takes tons of fun and interesting photos of China. I think you would enjoy her blog...

Miscellaneous From Missy said...

What is Gotcha Day? That sounds like fun!

Shelly Kneupper Tucker said...

You are going to have so much fun! Can't wait until you tell us all about her. Seeing things through a child's eye...that's the best way to see the world.

JAM said...

Congratulations! God bless the new family.

Ctina said...

What a fun list! BTW, I think I'd be perfectly happy watching Dawson's Creek or Golden Girls forever...yeah thats it!

More to add to your list:

Dancing with her in your arms and on your feet and watching her dance in Michael's arms and on his feet!

Gotcha Day is the day you become a forever family. Its the day you physically get your baby

Book and Hook said...

Thanks for visiting my Thursday Thirteen and for commenting!

Marilyn said...

Congratulations! What a wonderful experience you have to look forward to. I'm always amazed when I hold a baby that Daughter was ever that small and helpless and that I was ever qualified to care for her.

Being a parent is the hardest but the most rewarding thing you will ever do. I am so excited for you!

Happy TT! Thanks for stopping by!
