4 Months to Christmas Eve!!

I know you don't want to hear it but Yup today is the 24th which means 4 months to Christmas Eve!
This was my 18 year old daughter Jaclyn's 2005 Christmas Letter that she wrote to us I thought it was really sweet and came across it and thought I would share it with you. I cried when I read it, it was my favorite gift.
It reads,
Mom and Shane,
Wow guys I think it's amazing what you guys are doing, I'm proud, and soo soo much excited for my little baby sissy "Callie" to get here! She is going to be spoiled for sure! I hope she gets to have as much fun as I did with you guys. Some advice for Mom:
Keep cool, send her to Shane with the homework ( he has more patience), have cuddle night! And to Shane: She'd better be a Daddy's little princess, you are really good now Shane, you have come a long way, so keep calm like you have and she'll love being around, and talking to you, and hey maybe you can teach her to golf!!!
Have fun with her, let her be who she's ment to be, let her express herself and do what she enjoys, and do what you did to me , let her know she is an amazing girl who can do whatever she wants.
......I think I can. I think I can....... chooo.....choo
Love Jac x0x0x0x Posted by Picasa

Still Waiting for LID, called Province and they said they will call me as soon as they get the information.
She confirmed what I suspected, that is that the population of people adopting on PEI is alot smaller than in other provinces so the mail they send to the Island it not as plentiful as in other provinces. So we wait!
I hope we get this info before Christmas :0D

Hopefully you get your LID soon. It took us forever, but at the time, we didn't realize it's full significance and were going by our DTC date. Ended up our LID was only a week later. I'm thinking your LID will probably come with our that would be something to celebrate, eh?

That letter is beautiful and you have a lot to be proud of. As for waiting for LID news, count me in. I wish I knew why we Canadians have to wait so long!

Come on LID!!!!

Oh and if you want a graphic to be animated or blink or need to upload it to photobucket first then use the "Tag" address in your post under the EDIT HTML part!!!

Try's sooo easy!!!

Just go to and get your own album started. Or search their albums there (Like the word "thank you" or whatever) and use whatever comes up!!! If you click on the picture you want, the tag address should come up!

Let me know if you need any help!!!

That is a wonderful letter. It will be treasure for a lifetime.

I can't believe it is only four months until Christmas. That is a scary, exciting thought all rolled together. Scary in the fact that the year is flying. Exciting in the fact that the year is flying. :)

I hope you hear about your LID soon!
