2 years; 2 months

Today is TWO YEARS since we became an AAC family, officially. Our money (to begin) reached our agency and our formal application was filled out and "approved." The wait began, two years EXACTLY from today. WOW. Crazy, huh?!

August 14th, 2008, we called our agency and was told that we were #25! We were expecting like 50 or 60, but #25 - that was do-able! 8/14/2010 (this Saturday) is when we will attend our first Annual Picnic put on by our agency. With little Tootsie in tow. Amazing how it all fits in and works together, isn't it?! It's been a GREAT two years, full of ups and downs, but all worth it.

Yesterday was exactly 8 WEEKS since we have been home with our sweet Joye. Two months! Can you believe it!? I sure can't! She is adjusting and fitting in more and more each day. Sometimes it feels like we've been together for MORE than two months. And then other times it feels like LESS than two months. It's weird. Either way she fits in perfectly and we are SO glad that she's finally home.

Big celebrations today!

Our Social Worker is also coming today to do our first Post Placement report! What are the odds!?

Well, I just thought I would share our dates-on-the-calendar coincidences! They build my faith and help me to see that everything works out the way HE planned it: PERFECTLY.

I'm so glad to hear that you are coming. I can't wait to see your little "tootsie". I just love that by the way. =) See you there.

I can't believe that it has been 8 weeks since you have been home! And, 2 years since signing with AAC!?! Wow, seriously how times flies. . . Just when you think Joye can't get any cuter - she does. Those eyes just take you in. How do you say "no" to anything? Oh my goodness. What a doll!!! Let me know how the social worker visit goes - I'm sure all will be wonderful. Congrats on a smooth transition and beautiful family.
