We began the process to adopt a child from the Philippines in January 2007 and received ICAB approval in May 2008. On October 29, 2010 we were matched with our son Rafael and he joined our family on February 20, 2011!! Now we are home and are enjoying the adventures of parenting!!

On Saturday morning I took the dog for a walk and did the grocery shopping and I felt fine. At 1:00 that afternoon I started to get a sore throat, body aches, fever and chills along with a headache. It all came on so suddenly I thought it was the swine flu. I spent the rest of Saturday and most of Sunday in bed. By last night, the symptoms were all gone except for my cough and a headache. I went to work this morning and they sent me home because they said you have to be symptom free for at least 24 hours before returning to work. I know that makes sense since we work with small children many of which have comprised immune systems but today I don't feel too bad. So here I am at home with not too much to do so I thought I'd post a few more pictures.
Today's pictures are from Venice and Sicily.
Venice. Taken on Murano Island where they make the glass.
Rialto Bridge and of course I'm eating gelato.
St. Marks Square. We didn't spend too much time there as it was pretty crowded.
Sailing out of Venice.
The Greek Theatre in Taormina. They still hold performances there today. I'd imagine it would be an amazing place to go to a concert.
