A Valentine Kick-Off

As if last weekend wasn't exciting enough, this weekend was just as great... if not better! ;)

Harold and I got to go have our traditional Valentine's dinner last night. We have been eating at Cannon's Restaurant on St. Charles, for Valentine's, since we first started dating. We have only missed one year (thanks to darn Katrina!) since 2000. I think only once or twice have we actually celebrated on the 14th - usually it's the day before or after. We spent today with the girls, going to church and then to a fun lunch.

Then we came home to tackle this packet of papers:
Yup... We are finally making all our decisions and dreams come true! We have chosen Gladney as our adoption agency - hopefully, they choose us, too! - and Ethiopia as the country we'd like to adopt from! We are so excited! I'll have to share one day how we decided upon Ethiopia and how we truly feel called to that country. I think we're much too fortunate or blessed to start doubting God's plan for us and I'm not about to start now.

I know from following so many of your blogs and journeys that we need to prepare ourselves for the many high's and low's of adoption. We're ready for it. If it's one thing that I've learned from this whole medical school business, is that we can survive anything and great things come to those who wait!

Hope all of you had a great Valentine's Day!
