10 month anniversary!

Another month has passed and here we are at 10 months. The time really seems to be moving faster and faster and before you know it, we will reach our 1 year mark. I have met several families from Newfoundland now beginning the homestudy phase to adopt from the Philippines. It will be good to have contact with families who have children from the same country, especially since they all live within a 20 minute drive.

This has also been a very sad past few days. My cousin who I went to school with from Kindergarten to Grade 12 was killed in the helicopter crash here in Newfoundland. It is still quite unbelievable that it has happened. There were several people at my work who had relatives on board the helicopter. One person survived but the other 17 did not. They have located the wreckage and plan to bring the helicopter up soon and they think the bodies are inside. I hope this is true so that all of the families can get some closure and begin the healing process.

I am sorry to hear about your cousin. It is so hard to recover from those "freak" accidents.

Yea...10 months! Very soon it will be a year. I don't want to be a downer, but the 1st year went by fast for us, but since that time, it seems like everyday I get up thinking "this could be the day that we get our call" and yet here we are still waiting. It is so hard to know that we are close, yet really not know how long it could still be.
