The top 10 things I've learned over the past 10 months....

1o.....that chickens are good fund-raisers
9....that buying books for the baby can be very fun (and Amazon can be a little dangerous)
8....that momentum can be stalled but not stopped
7....that I am my father's daughter and can be handy
6...that unlike hearing about other people's pregnancies, learning about a referral is good for my soul
5...that even though I successfully tried being handy, I'm still a crafty girl
4....that I should never forget my ghost of Christmas Past, because it was what got me to where I am today
3....that I know what I want, even when I doubt myself
2...that even I feel like I am sometimes, I am not alone
and the number one thing I've learned over the last 10 months....that I made it this far, and I'm strong enough to wait as long as I need to.

Ten months down, who knows how many to go, but let's just say eight to 14.


  1. Laurie! I didn't realize you are another adopting single mama, yay!
