I'm still bouncing off the clouds. I get my plane tickets in a couple weeks.

No computer for her yet. LOL. My laptop at home is on it's last legs. Need to get my brother to build me a PC.

Snupy, I am adopting from Guatemala, but would be happy to talk to you about various choices I looked at. There are a number of options out there and each has pluses and minuses.

There has been a whole flood of people here adopting from China, including friends of ours. They are very happy.

I started with China, but for a time they were reducing the number of single parent applicants. I figured that I should try to get my baby home before I had too many more grey hairs. (Thanks for your genes dad. LOL) So I switched plans and chose Guatemala.

If I had a picture image small enough, I'd post it. She is sooooo beautiful.

I plan to adopt when I get older, and employed.

It would be a service to the world not to pass on my genes. I dub this artifical selection. Thank you, Darwin.

Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.

Natural selection tends to require less effort, though [Wink] :

I am back with the most beautiful baby in Guatemala. Dora-Marie is a very happy baby... well as long as she gets her nap. Still getting the hang of the whole single mom thing. Well lets face it, still getting the hang of being a mom.

You will do great.

Congratulations!

Parenthood is a great adventure, I'm sure you'll love it (most of the time).

When will she be signing up to GC?

Can we see the pictures soon. If they are too big (memory-wise) I'm sure someone here would be more than willing to sort that out for you. You obviously have your hands full at the moment.

Word of advice, they don't ever stop needing to be fed and will never truly leave home.
I'm 32 and still expect my mother to feed me when I go visit.

All the best mum (sorry, mom). [thumbsup]
