The Lovey Award has been bestowed on me

This award has been bestowed on me by my new and true blog friend M from Faith, Hope,& Love. I've never met her in person, but yet I share with her one thing and that is that somehow one day we will both hold our sweet little girls who we have been waiting for so long. (M, thank you so much for this award. It means so much coming from you. I know one day we will be sharing stories and photos of our new little ones.)

The Rules: "These blogs are exceedingly charming.These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly- written text into the body of their award."

Now with out any further a due these are my 8 choices...)

First of all I choose my sweet and dear friend that is more like a true sister to me, Leigh from As Up She Grows. Also known as My Katey on my sidebar. Leigh and I have something very close in common; we have our daughters who are from the same SWI and who shared the same exact Nanny! Pretty cool huh? She has been with me through all of this stuff for Mylie, and often pulls me back in line and tries so hard to make me understand that Mylie must not be ready for us still. (Leigh, I love you my friend! Without our connection of adoption we might have never met, and let me tell you I would be so lost without your friendship).

Second, my sweet China Sister Susan from The Miracle of Maiya. Susan and I found each other from being with the same agency and the same LID date. She has her little angel now and I am so happy she has her to hold and love for ever more. We have so many things in common and I have been so lucky to have her as my China Sister, friend and Pal! (Susan thank you for being there for me and my family. I'm so lucky to have your friendship. You are one of the many sweetest people I've been fortunate to be connected with. You will always be a dear friend.)

Third, is my funny, super bargain shopper, and little mother, Sherry from Spring Babies. Sherry is waiting some final steps to bring her new daughter home. We have two things in common that has brought us together as forever friends and China Sisters; we both are part of the same agency and we both have the same LID. The wait has been so hard on us, but we will come through this alright since we both know that God has one thing in mind for us~a daughter chosen just for us. Sherry is one of the lucky ones though her little angel is now waiting for her. (Sherry, I love you girl! You have been such a strength in my corner, and am so grateful that we have been connected in this way.)

Fourth, Lynn over at The Story Of Us. Lynn and I have become friends due to the same exact thing as the ones above; adoption, agency and same LID group. Lynn has just brought her little boy home from China, and he is just adorable. (Lynn, thank you so much for being there as a friend and sister. I'm so happy that we have met and will continue to be friends.)

Fifth, is Deborah from Three Sweetpeas in a Pod. Deborah is a mommy of three and just adores her little crew. You must go over and take a look at her beautiful daughters. (Deborah, I would really love to meet you in person one day. You are such a sweet person.)

Sixth, is Debbi at Winding Vines. Debbi is very funny person. I love going over to her blog and catching up on the antics that are going on with their daughter Sarah. Debbi is a true inspiration and wonderful mom! ( Debbi, thank you for allowing me to follow along and be a part of Sarah's life. It is fun watching her discover new things.)

Seventh, is Vivian at Life with Kerri.
Vivian has become a bloggy friend of mine. I love her antics with her daughter Kerri. (Vivian, I'm so happy I've met you through a mutual friends blog.)

Eighth, is Sandy over at Pokonutz. Sandy and her husband have the biggest hearts I've known. They truly love all Children. You must go over and see why... hers is the story of love and much courage.) ( Sandy, you are a true inspiration.)

A couple of things...

#1: Kristy from Franceska's Journey Home, asked which one was Holly. Holly is in the Lady and the Tramp video and the others as well. Short, cute, and wears glasses.

#2: I guess everyone has noticed my wallpaper is solid Pink again. Not my choice!! I am not sure what is up with that. I need to work on it again. I'm beginning to hate blogger due to the fact this makes twice I've had this happen with my wallpaper. Luckily I have the bird one on my photo file so I can work on getting it back on.

Any ideas on how to reload and keep it on!!??

Hope everyone's weekend is a good one.
