I have been in Maryland for a long extended weekend with my sister and her family. Yesterday, I slept in and I was devastated. Why? Well, I was making hats for 3 special little guys to be sent with my friend, Linda, who was kind enough to bring them with her to China because she is picking up her son, Henry! (Lee's current crib mate) I am so beyond excited about little Henry coming home. What I was upset about, was that I had not finished one of the hats yet and we were about to leave to go touring Washington D.C. With tears welling up in my eyes, I managed to finish the last hat. My sister, who probably thought I was going crazy, helped me with the last few things that needed to be done with the hat so we could go.
Well, we drive up to the post office, and what do you know... it's CLOSED! Ugh! It's President's Day. So I am upset with myself. Not only did I make us an hour later for the touring, but I didn't get the hats sent off.
So we get to D.C. and survived the traffic and finding a parking spot. My sister, the driver, was a bit stressed. I fully remember being stressed in that traffic the last time Joey and I drove through D.C. It's enough to make a grown man/woman cry. Anyhow, we eat a late lunch at Mc Donalds. When leaving I noticed that I had a text on my phone from my friend, Monique. She said that a friend of ours, Jennifer, had received her LID. Why would this be important to me? Well, Jennifer and I have the same placing agency, the same DTC date, and now we have the same LID!!! Monique knew all of this, and figured that I had not had any internet access wherever I was. My sister let me use her iphone to search my email, and sure enough there it was! Btw... a BIG thank you to Monique for texting me!!!
FEBRUARY 15th LID
Okay, so now I am feeling better. I am floating a bit, because not only did we get LID but when parking, I noticed a Fed Ex store and it was OPEN!! So we walk to the Fed Ex store, and I overnight the special package which contained 3 hippo hats and a flower hat. A green hippo for Lee, a red hippo for Connor, a blue hippo for Henry, and a turquoise hat with a big hot pink flower for a baby girl in their orphanage.
The package arrived today. THANK YOU Linda!! Thank you so much for bringing these hats, and some other special gifts to my little guy and his friends :) And best of all, thanks for offering to bring my little guy a hug from his momma. My eyes are tearing up just thinking about it!
Now on to the wait for LOA....
