Kat & Colin's baby shower
This is Kat and Colin from USAA Group 110. Kat may not look it, but she's four months overdue! That's right, it was originally thought that they'd have their Sophia's referral sometime last year. Needless to say, the delays are brutal!
Today was their baby shower and even though there was no picture of sweet little Sophia, I know she's out there somewhere waiting for some bureaucracy to match her file with the file of her new mom and dad. When that happens, the lives of many people will finally converge. It'll happen soon. A few weeks at the most.
Gwen ran around their house and did what she does best: Act cute. She's a walking advertisment for China adoption since she's charming beyond words. I can't claim any credit for for it either. Darn!
Today, Gwen learned how to rip paper off of packages. She never quite figured this out over Christmas but she's got it mastered now! She "helped" Kat open all of her baby shower gifts and here she is posing with the presents she just assumed would all be for her!
I hope time flies and the next batch of referrals are announced soon! I have so many friends who were so close last month and are more than ready for the stork to arrive and bring their extended labor to a happy end!
