4 weeks

I know that you are all wondering if we have a court date yet and I am too! I was really hoping we would have it by now but I have learned not to get my hopes up in adoption......you are always waiting for something.

Yesterday was a great Mother's Day although I wished I had both of my babies there. My mind was on another mother far away, praying for her health, her sorrow, her world. I think about this lady a lot and how grateful I am to her and how I wish this didn't have to be the way it is. It is my goal to be a great mother for her daughter and to make sure she knows that she is loved.

Over the weekend I also went to my sister's senior fashion show (she is a fashion design student) and she won an award for Best Niche Market. It was so much fun so I thought I would post some pictures from it:)

Please excuse the color on these, there was a huge spotlight and my camera was not happy about it. This is a cute dress my sister designed.

These two are bridesmaid dresses from her wedding collection.

The wedding dresses.....so pretty!

My sister receiving her award!

My sisters and me. I look really terrible because I had to run in the rain to get there! oh well:)

I will let you know if I hear something.......
