Maybe not as done as I think...

So, I thought I was truly done with writing on this blog. I went through looking for a particular photo (which to my dismay I never found ON the blog, but did manage to find while going through a gazillion photos on my laptop) and noticed that I had some great posts. LOL! Yes, I am tooting my own horn. I miss having a place to write, vent, share and show people what my wild family is up to. Well, besides Facebook. Anywho...small updates.

Everyone is going well. No major changes to health or our family size. We did add a new dog named Abigail Louise. She's a hoot. Another Springer Spaniel, a bit of a wild girl. She's been a great addition to our family and I love having 2 puppies to keep me busy!!

One of the other reasons that I wanted to write again is there seems to be a ton of folks advocating for special needs children from China. There are over 2000 "waiting children" on a shared list right now. Julia was a assigned kiddo and her file was with AAI. Now, there is the shared list where any agency can place those children. Great idea and it seems to be working well. So on my return to blogging here on Ladybugs and The Red Thread, I wanted to have everyone to think of a special kiddo I saw today. A boy who has microtia (like Ju) but also a pretty severe cleft lip and palate. His picture has tugged at me all day and I pray that he finds a forever family soon.

Ahhh...great to be back. Feels like home again. Now, to update my blog layout and look!! Woohoo!
