My First Shower!

Well, today was a very special day. I had a shower with all the teachers and school staff that I work with. It was amazing. They have all been so supportive. They bought Abbey so many darling things and gave me lots gift cards so that I can do some major shopping. Best of all was the pleasure of their company. I am just very fortunate to work with all these caring people. We watched the Bring Me Hope video and a friend who has been to the orphanages in China brought pictures for everone to look at. I will never forget this day or the love shown for my daughter. Posted by Picasa

    What a great day!!! I'm so happy for you. Having a shower must really intensify the excitement and the reality of what's just around the corner. If you're like me, you'll be gazing at those shower gifts off and on throughout the weekend! Whenever I bring something home for Jillian, I keep going back to it! Enjoy!!!

    Hi Erin, I'm not able to click on your name to get a link to you. If you'll email me I will chat with you about GWCA. Bottom line, they've been great so far.
