I haven't been soo good about keeping up my writing. Lots of coals on the fire and it's taken a back burner. We are nearing the end of our first year home with Aregash and I have lots planned to celebrate. So coming soon....VERY soon......is a video from the last year. Yay!!!! I did it! And even ahead of schedule (well, someone's schedule)!! Tuesday we are finalizing her adoption (she is already "ours", but this is a technicality to receiving a US birth certificate). Saturday (our FAMILY DAY--the day we stepped foot on US soil with her) we are having a little get-together with our close friends who have supported our adoption, past and present. Then Sunday we are having her dedicated in church where we will show her video. So I am a
little lot overwhelmed at the moment.
I have to admit that I haven't been the best at keeping up with anything.......her life book, sorting, filing, and printing pictures. In fact, I told myself that BEFORE Christmas I would get a picture of Aregash on the wall with her brothers. One day, finally, about a couple of months ago she looked up at the 4 frames hanging on the wall, pointed at the lady in HER frame, and said "who dat mommy?" You woulda thought that would have done it for me. I feel like somewhat of a failure.
BUT.....I am taking care of it THIS week......before our friends come to help us celebrate this wee one. Seems like the right thing to do. I'll post a picture soon. I got a lot of grief from people when I hadn't changed my blog family picture to include Aregash. It took me awhile to get my family together. I surely don't love her any less!!
I have a new computer, which I have kind of (very slowly) learned how to maneuver, and that makes all the difference when it comes to accomplishing things that involve a computer. Which includes just about everything nowadays. So I vow to be better at keeping things up-to-date.
