Emailing you soon love.
I've cried a lot today. But I will also go and buy an external hard drive and start backing everything up.
I've also cried lots today because my friend finally got through fighting immigration and is allowed to bring her two children home from Uganda this week. After a year of fighting.
Good tears. Two orphans home from Uganda and now part of a family. How sweet!
My hands are itching to knit something for my dance partners. I've been thinking and smiling about this all day. I can't wait to see what hard things we can do together, my fellow Monkees!
Thank you, sister, I hear you and respect you and understand what you have said.
You are so not a wet blanket.
I can't believe you lost all of your writing. Did you cry? I would cry forever.
Excited to see what you have planned. Excited that my laptop has been fixed and I can now access your blog. Missed you. Sadly, I lost all my writing on my laptop cause I suck and didn't back anything up.
Can I be the bitch in this group and point out something? A couple of people have made comments about adopting these children. Both now in Uganda and in Rwanda. I have no idea of the motivations behind these comments and desires and so want to be really careful here. As a mother to two adopted children from Africa, I just want to tell everyone that to be excited to adopt an African child is normal. At least in my world. But to remember the realities of actually doing it. Most of these children come with moderate to extreme issues. (malnutrition, institutionalization, PTSD, abuse of all kinds, insecurity, fear of abandonment, developmental delays, etc).That it is a grueling, emotionally stripping process. It is the most amazing thing I have ever done, but waltzing into an adoption without weighing more to your thought process then how cute and needy these children are is dangerous.
Nothing would make me happier than if you ALL adopted. Twice. At least. Just know what you are getting into first. It's not easy, it's not cute and it's not just about their need. At least it shouldn't be, because that's not a healthy parent/child relationship.
Sorry for once again being the wet blanket. I am just so scared of people adopting a child who has a hard history and then realizing this isn't what they signed up for. That is heart breaking for all.
PS. I'm not trying to sound cranky. Please read this in the best possible way.
Glennon, Love it! Beautiful. Apparently you have adapted quickly to your slower pace of life. I'm considering my patience with this a RAK.
Shoes… check. Nametag… check. Arms open… check.
My toes are tapping! Can't wait to get my groove on.
Sooooooooooooo ready! They're gorgeous!
FINALLY, we get to hear an update on the babies. SO EXCITED about tomorrow.
Ready to Dance!
ohhh can't wait, can't wait, can't wait. i might just pee my pants as i'm doing my dance i am so excited. o.k. so i won't pee my pants, but i will keep doing my dance.
So I was just running through my morning routine of Momastery and then "regular" news and saw this article on Yahoo that sent you to this interesting website (http://globalrichlist.com/) that tells you your global ranking of wealth based on your salary. Then it tells you what you could do with just a little bit of money – 1 of the 3 examples it gave me was "$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda."
A coincidence? I think not! Just wanted to share.
You're such a tease! Its just mean to show us those sweet smiling faces and not tell us more! Can't wait to hear about our next step on this curious ride…
Oh, I am so anxiously curious to find out what's next!!
So good to see them smiling, laughing, and being kids!
Love that the partners are already smiling instead of standing on the other side of the gym looking like they wish they'd stayed home instead of showing up for the dance!
Can't wait to read what Mike & Megan have to say!
