Holy schmakaroo. To all those adoptees out there just starting on this road to planet adoption or those who are stuck in yet another frustrating delay or setback, please hang in there. You will be a family one day. Your little one may just not be quite ready for you yet. They need a teeny bit more time.

I bump into Miss Curly Wurly's mom in the local supermarket and we end up having a half hour LBM appreciation moment in the cold meat aisle.

Eeek, I guess this means we will be signing our first card as 'mummy and daddy'
